Seymour CA Looking at Quarry


Seymour Conservation Area has continuously been improved since purchased in 1973.  Oak Alvar Savannah restoration and trail improvements are just a couple examples of Lower Trent Conservation’s work on this property.

Important Notice

Due to large gatherings, littering and campfires we have been forced to close the second parking lot at Seymour Conservation Area. You are still able to access the quarry, but will have to walk from the first parking lot. Please be aware there will also be an increase in patrolling and enforcement in this area as well. If you observe improper use of our conservation authorities, please contact our Supervisor of Conservation Lands at 613 391 4117 .

Natural Habitat Areas

In addition to Conservation Areas, Lower Trent Conservation owns and manages Natural Habitat areas. These areas are not promoted as recreational use areas. They are generally large tracts of land that remain in their natural state. There are no maintained trails or facilities but they are open to the public.
