Protecting the special natural features of the Couchiching region for future generations

We believe that protecting the natural land in our region is vitally important. Not only does it provide crucial habitat for plants and animals, it’s also a valuable part of a healthy community.

The Couchiching Conservancy is a non-profit, non-government land trust supported by individuals like you – people who want to ensure that special natural places are safeguarded for the future.

Our success over the years shows our commitment to conservation. Since 1993 we have helped to protect over 14,000 acres of special natural lands – in some cases globally rare ecosystems. Many of these properties were donated by caring people who wished to leave a living legacy.

Our donors, volunteers and staff work together to make The Couchiching Conservancy a beacon of hope, a bastion of reason and cooperation. In an age of environmental paralysis, we get things done.

That’s our brand. That’s our mission.
