With your help, more than 4 km of one of the last wild rivers in southern Ontario will be protected forever.
The Couchiching Conservancy has a rare opportunity to protect more than 4 km of Black River shoreline, winding through 730 acres of diverse wilderness. This parcel will fill a significant gap in Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park. The river runs through the core of the property and its floodplains features rich, deep sands that are uncommon in the rest of the park. Forest and wetland habitats make it a mecca for wildlife and birds.

The Conservancy is racing to raise $575,000 to purchase this Nature Reserve, to protect its ecological values from the rapidly escalating development pressures along the Black River. The Reserve will have trail use, canoeing and kayaking opportunities, with linkages to the Ganaraska Trail and Trans Canada Trail.
This is a great opportunity to bring this beautiful river run under permanent protection.
