Lower Trent Conservation
Did You Know?

On average, Conservation Authorities plant more than 2M trees annually through their various tree planting programs and stewardship initiatives. This work helps to mitigate climate change by moderating the effects of drought and flooding, reducing soil erosion, reducing GHGs, sequestering carbon, providing habitat for wildlife, creating recreational opportunities, and providing an essential economic resource.


Tri-County Children’s Water Festival

The Tri-County Water Festival is an annual event that motivates students in Grade 4 (including split 3/4 and 4/5 classes) to become water stewards in their homes, classroom and community. This youth environmental education program features over 30 interactive, hands-on learning activity centres, providing youth with opportunities to learn about our most precious natural resource – water!


Over 100 volunteers help make the Tri-County Water Festival a success each year! Volunteers run activity centres, assist with setup and teardown, and provide daily operation support during the festival.

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers are needed to assist with this event!
