The Couchiching Conservancy believes that protecting the natural land in their 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 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.

The Couchiching Conservancy’s success over the years shows their commitment to conservation. Since 1993 The Conservancy has helped to protect over 13,000 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.

Their 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, they get things done.

That’s The Conservancy’s brand. That’s their mission.
