Our mission is to provide leadership in the restoration and protection of the environmental health and quality of Lake Simcoe and its watershed. For more than 60 years, we have worked to protect natural resources in the Lake Simcoe watershed, in collaboration with community, municipal, and other government partners.
We are members of Conservation Ontario, the umbrella organization for all 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario.
We are the winners of the 2009 Thiess Riverprize.
