A little about us:
Kawartha Land Trust is at an exciting stage in our development as an organization. We have experienced significant growth over the past 5 years which has seen us transition from a small, bootstrap organization into a professional land trust which protects over 4,000 acres of ecologically sensitive land in the Kawarthas.
A new Executive Director joined KLT in 2019 and a new strategic plan will be completed in early 2020 to lead us into our next phase of growth. We are at a critical time for land conservation in our area and plan for another growth spurt in the next 3-5 years.
