Dedicated to protecting and preserving the natural habitats and landscapes that make the Kawarthas unique.

Kawartha Land Trust works to identify and protect properties that are vital to the health and well-being of our environment, including forests, wetlands, prairies, and other critical ecosystems. By working with landowners, local communities, and other stakeholders, we strive to ensure that these protected properties are safeguarded for future generations.
