Conservation Lands Acquisition

Conservation Lands Acquisition

Since the early 1980’s, many agencies, in particular the Nature Conservancy of Canada, have been involved in generating funds to purchase lands within Minesing wetlands. The deeds are then transferred to the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (NVCA), which maintains the properties as public conservation lands. Of the wetlands approximately 15,000 acres, just over 9,000 or 60%, are owned and managed by the NVCA. In such a program as this, landowners can preserve the lands as a natural legacy for their children and for the community.
