September 17, 2014 – They’re small, slimy and slithering and they’re coming to a town near you. The Hamlet of Belfountain hosts its 18th Annual Salamander Festival on Saturday, September 27, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in partnership with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), the Belfountain Community Organization and community partners.

The Jefferson Salamander is native to Ontario and found primarily in Belfountain. CVC is committed to educating local residents about their roles caring for environments that are home to endangered species. Each year people come to visit unique vendors and learn about CVC’s efforts protecting Belfountain’s green spaces.

“It’s a great day for supporting local talents, crafts and exploring this beautiful community,” says Deborah Martin-Downs, Chief Administrative Officer for CVC. “Each year we come out to Belfountain to celebrate salamanders as a symbol of a healthy environment and local commitments to helping CVC conserve green spaces.”

Activities take place in the Hamlet and Belfountain Conservation Area. Visitors of all ages will discover exciting activities, including:

  • Silent auction and live entertainment featuring the Rod Salisbury Band and Melyssa Kerr
  • New ‘Local Food Court’ featuring sweet and savory foods
