Running a charitable venture may be among the hungriest of business pursuits.
You have no widgets to sell; you can’t ratchet up sales by improving your product line. Your customers are your employers, so you hope to get it right every time. Good will is, after all, easily transportable.
As a longtime resident of Orillia and Simcoe County, I’ve watched our community grow, change and develop over time. Some of my favourite places in town – restaurants, stores, forests and playgrounds –are still here while others have been replaced or removed entirely.
Between June and December 2015, the Couchiching Conservancy undertook a citizen science project to monitor water quality in the Upper Talbot River sub-watershed of Lake Simcoe.
With assistance from volunteers, we care for over 12,000 acres of diverse land across the region. Stewardship activities include property monitoring, taking species inventories, trail maintenance and more. Learn about what we have been up to this Fall.
With involvement in more than 40 natural properties and a very small paid staff, The Couchiching Conservancy would be in a tough spot if not for a small army of dedicated volunteers. Many of those volunteers make up property teams which help us look after the lands under our care.
Ken was a founding member and an early president of the organization. He has worked tirelessly for the conservancy as a volunteer since it began in 1993. If you have walked over a bridge on one of our properties, or taken a moment to look at a sign, you’ve experienced some of his work first-hand.
We help to protect thousands of acres of land across the region. All of this land requires on-going care, much of which is done by our group of wonderful volunteers.
