Interesting Features:

With support from over 200 people from the community, we were able to raise a total of over $750,000 in just 7 weeks due to strong community involvement and passion for this project and successfully purchased the Christie Bentham Wetland

The Christie Bentham Wetland features over 1,200 feet of natural, undisturbed waterfront on Clear Lake. The Provincially Significant Wetland contributes to the water quality of surrounding Bays and Clear Lake and provides vital habitat to breeding fish, birds and Species at Risk. The property is identified within the Kawarthas Naturally Connected Preferred Scenario as an important piece of our natural landscape!

The property also features beautiful walking trails throughout. The dream is for these trails to form part of a network linking numerous protected properties in between Burleigh Falls and Young’s Point.
