Lower Trent Conservation
Did You Know?

In the past 100 years, anywhere from 200 to 500 terrestrial vertebrate species have gone extinct. This is at least 100 times greater than the natural rate of extinction. 40.7% of amphibian species are endangered or at risk of becoming endangered.

Trenton Green Belt Trail

Trenton Greenbelt

Trenton Greenbelt Conservation Area provides a perfect setting for picnic lunches between shopping in downtown Trenton. The Jack Lange Memorial Walkway offers something for everyone . . . walking, hiking, cycling or wildlife viewing. The boat launch provides access to the Trent River and the Bay of Quinte.

Restoring the Trenton Greenbelt

Meadows are beautiful ecosystems that provide habitat for pollinators, birds, and wildlife. Over the next couple years, Lower Trent Conservation will be transforming this lawn into a wildflower meadow by seeding and planting native flowers, grasses, shrubs and trees; trails and seating will also be added. Intensive site perperation and patience are critical to the success of this greenspace restoration project.

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.
