More than 100 McMaster University students involved with MacGreen for Grasslands volunteered at the Color Me Rad five-kilometre run at Christie Lake Conservation Area. McMaster students have pledged to raise $25,000 to protect environmentally significant grasslands located on York Road, north of the university. Since the Hamilton Conservation Foundation was Color Me Rad’s charity for the Christie Lake event, students saw it as a wonderful opportunity to help raise funds to protect the grasslands.
