Support BARC Today!

The Bay Area Restoration Council (BARC) is at the centre of citizen efforts to restore and protect the ecosystem health of Hamilton Harbour and its watershed. BARC also functions as a watchdog organization, assessing and promoting the clean up projects for the bay. Involving the community in harbour issues requires public participation and membership support. To engage the community, BARC delivers school programs, guided harbour tours, and lecture series.
