ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION:

The Ignatius Jesuit Centre (IJC) is a not for profit charity situated on 600 acres of woodlands, wetlands and farmland just outside of Guelph Ontario. IJC welcomes all and is home to Loyola Retreat House & Ignatian Training Ignatius Farm, the Ignatius Old-Growth Forest, St Brigid’s Villa, and the Orchard Park Office Centre.

The Ignatius Old-Growth Forest Project, an initiative of the Ignatius Jesuit Centre is situated at the northern edge just beyond the City of Guelph. This 93-acre nature sanctuary of trails, forests, meadows, wetlands and waterways is protected by a Conservation Easement with Ontario Farmland Trust.   It is the Project’s goal, with the help of local students and community volunteers to restore and protect these diverse ecological communities and to assist the regeneration of retired farmland, from old-field meadow to old-growth forest.

The project lands form a band of protected natural space connecting Guelph Lake Conservation area in the east to the Guelph-Eramosa Trail in the west. This green corridor provides forest habitat, ecological connectivity and is an important riparian buffer contributing to the health of the Grand River watershed and the Great Lakes.
