There is nothing better to paddle than a river. I find it to be a perfect metaphor for life.
Today The Couchiching Conservancy launches the public phase of a fundraising campaign to protect a major section of one of the last wild rivers in southern Ontario.
A look at volunteer and staff activities at some of the properties we help to protect and care for with your support! Check back often.
The Couchiching Conservancy has a rare opportunity to protect more than 4 kms of Black River shoreline, winding through 730 acres of intact wilderness. Working with Ontario Parks, the Conservancy is racing to raise $575,000 to purchase this parcel which will fill a significant gap in Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park.
Just imagine the opportunity to embark on an environmental expedition that immerses you in the depths of wilderness, where you get to learn, explore, and engage with nature alongside like-minded people. A whirlwind “safari,” if you will, for 24 hours observing species at risk, breathing in fresh air, and taking immediate conservation action all while having fun.
Hear from our President of the Board of Directors, Doug Christie, on why you should be a member of The Couchiching Conservancy.
We are blessed by Woodpeckers! Worldwide, there are 210 different species, but in Ontario we only have 9 of them.
The Orillia Museum of Art & History and The Couchiching Conservancy are proud to announce, Conserving Creativity, as part of 2017’s Ontario150 celebrations in showcasing the legacy of our cultural landscape.
Sometimes a little patch of earth seeps into you until it gets a little hard to discern where it ends and you begin.
It’s funny that we don’t have a word for that feeling, though countless people have experienced it across the ages.
The Couchiching Conservancy will be holding the 3rd “Nuts for Nature” family funfest at the Carden Recreation Centre this coming Sunday, June 11 from 9 am to 4 pm. The focus is on kids and their exposure to the natural world.
