Thanks to your support, KLT has been getting a lot of great press these days!
In case you missed it, here’s a round-up of fantastic KLT media coverage from the last month.
Local, independent media outlet kawarthaNOW.com wrote a wonderful piece announcing two new wetland properties, on Nogie’s Creek and Balsam Lake, which are now under KLT protection because of supporters like YOU.
“Wetlands are so important for drought prevention, flood protection, water quality improvement and, most importantly, are immensely valuable to climate resilience,” KLT Executive Director, John Kintare, told kawarthaNOW.

Speaking of World Wetlands Day — a United Nations awareness-raising initiative held on February 2nd, 2022 — that’s when KLT staff Hayden Wilson was featured on Global News Morning Peterborough!
Hayden did a great job explaining just how unique and valuable the wetlands in the Kawartha region are, particularly for carbon storage. Wetlands play a key role in regulating greenhouse gases and buffering the impacts of climate change.
