We depend on your passion for wild places.

You care enough to act to protect natural spaces before they are gone forever and together, we’re making things better. We’ve got proof. You can walk on it, touch it, smell it, hold it in your hands – 13,000 acres of protected land in the Couchiching and Carden region and growing. Your gift supports the continuing work of The Couchiching Conservancy, both now through one-time donations and monthly giving, and in the future through planned giving.

Black River Wildlands Corridor Campaign

The creation of wildlife corridors has become more urgent in the face of a rapidly changing climate. The reality has been reflected in The Couchiching Conservancy’s approach to updating its natural heritage acquisition strategy. Through this process, it became clear the importance of the Black River Wildlands region. 

This Acquisition and Stewardship Campaign will run over a number of years. We have two parcels in Stage One to focus on, and there are other parcels identified for potential protection in the future.

An estimated $1.2 million is needed over the course of the campaign, which could protect a land base worth an estimated $4.5 million. We currently have two parcels going through the Acquisition process (detailed below), and work is underway to acquire additional land in the Black River Wildlands region. Your donation to the campaign helps to power this work.
