Lower Trent Conservation is a community-based non-profit environmental protection organization that protects, restores and manages the natural resources within the Lower Trent watershed region. We work with local communities to create a healthy, environmentally diverse watershed that improves the quality of life for residents, makes our area more appealing to visitors and new business, and helps to ensure a more vibrant regional economy.

PROVINCIAL CHANGES TO CONSERVATION AUTHORITIES ACT WILL HAVE NEGATIVE IMPACT ON WATERSHED MANAGEMENT

 Lower Trent Conservation's role in protecting and managing the local environment is being threatened by proposed changes to the Conservation Authorities Act and Planning Act. Ontario’s 36 conservation authorities are important agencies that help protect Ontario’s environment. Our science-based watershed information helps steer development to appropriate places where it will not harm the environment or create risks to people and property.
