The Kawartha Land Trust (KLT) is a dynamic land conservation charity with an impressive track record of growth. Our mission is caring for lands entrusted to us and helping others protect the land they love in the Kawarthas. We do this by accepting donations of ecologically-significant lands and/or interest in lands and by engaging the community in support of this work through gifts of time and money to ensure those lands are cared for, in perpetuity. To date we permanently protect over 4,100 acres of land in the Kawarthas. Our successes have been achieved through the work of our dedicated and growing volunteers and donors. Continuing to build community ‘buy in’ to our conservation vision is important to grow our impact. Volunteer events, guided walks, workshops and one-on-one visits with landowners are ways that we will continue to ensure that the community understands and is engaged in the process of permanently protecting our landscape.
