Who We Are
Kawartha Land Trust (KLT) is a dynamic land conservation charity with an impressive track record of growth. Our mission is to care for the lands entrusted to us and help others protect the land they love in the Kawarthas. We create nature reserves for future generations by acquiring ecologically important lands and/or interest in lands. We also enhance our stewardship of the land by engaging landowners in land care initiatives through our Partners in Conservation program.
Founded in 2001, KLT protects 33 properties that include more than 5,350 acres of ecologically diverse lands, some of which include hiking trails that introduce thousands of people to nature in the Kawarthas every year. We have achieved our successes through the work of our dedicated and growing team of donors, volunteers and supporters. Together, we can ensure more natural spaces in the Kawarthas are preserved forever.
KLT works within the Treaty 20 Michi Saagiig Territory and we are dedicated to continuing to create meaningful connections and relationships with First Nations communities in our region.

About the Regional Conservation and Climate Partnership
The twin challenges of biodiversity loss and climate change require more on-the-ground conservation action if we are to build a nature-positive society by 2050.
While the issues are global in scale, regional and local solutions are required to reach international targets. In the Kawarthas, regional and local organizations, government agencies, and private consultants are making tremendous gains; however, collective, coordinated efforts are required to achieve the necessary conservation outcomes and cultural changes that are needed to create and sustain a nature-positive Kawarthas now and in the future.
Regional conservation and climate partnerships (RCCP) are a way to improve the shared outcomes and objectives of conservation organizations, people, and groups within a region. Kawartha Land Trust has received funding to develop an RCCP in the Kawarthas to lead an initiative to build a network of sustainable farm and forestry organizations, land-based educators, land-based recreation organizations, land trusts, other conservation groups, and Williams Treaties First Nations rights holders. Together, these partners will work to achieve shared conservation and nature-based climate targets and promote positive relationships with land.
By combining our efforts, we are more likely to attract the large multi-year funding and technical support needed to achieve the accelerated and enhanced conservation outcomes we are striving for in our collective region and create the momentum needed to implement additional programs over time.
KLT’s Regional Conservation and Climate Partnership Convenor (RCCPC) takes primary responsibility for operationalizing the idea of “resilience through collaboration” in the Kawarthas. With KLT as their home base, and using proven impact models, the RCCPC will create something new in our region. They will formalize and enhance partnerships between individuals and organizations engaged in land access and management to create and implement a common vision for our shared landscape in the Kawarthas. This vision, and its corresponding action plan, will be used to attract support for RCCP member organizations – growing our collective impact.
Reporting to the Executive Director and working closely with the Director of Community Conservation and other staff, the RCCPC’s work will coalesce around the following core areas:
