Lower Trent Conservation

New Strategic Plan

Lower Trent Conservation prepared its first strategic plan in 1993, and updated it in 2008.  A new strategic plan will be released in 2018, in time for our 50th anniversary. A strategic plan is an important document to have – one that clearly expresses why we are here, what our goals are, and how we will achieve them.

We are seeking input on the development of this document through an online survey.  There are 6 questions.  It should only take a few minutes to complete.

About Us

TrentRiver_GlenRoss.jpgIn response to requests from local communities, Lower Trent Conservation was formed in 1968 under the Conservation Authorities Act to protect, restore and manage water and other natural resources within the Lower Trent Conservation watershed region.

Lower Trent Conservation is accountable to the residents of the watershed through our Board of Directors appointed by the elected councils of the seven municipalities located either entirely, or partially, within the watershed region. This accountability, combined with local decision making, is a key strength that Lower Trent Conservation draws on as we work with our partners to address the region’s environmental challenges.

We are striving to be a local leader in conservation - working with others towards healthy watersheds for now and future generations.

We see healthy watersheds as having:
  • excellent water quality
  • excellent water quantity
  • reduced flood & erosion risk
  • natural areas for all to share
  • abundant & diverse natural habitats
  • vibrant & productive communities
  • people who appreciate the natural environment
