The Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy gets its name and geographic boundaries from the days of early settlement in this part of Ontario. The Huron Tract was purchased by the Canada Company, an agent of the British government, to be distributed to colonial settlers of Upper Canada.
Land trusts, also known as land conservancies, are charitable organizations that, as all or part of their mission, actively work to conserve land with natural, recreational, scenic, historical or agricultural value. Land trusts accept donations and bequests of land and conservation agreements and in some cases, may purchase land or conservation agreements.
The land is then permanently protected to preserve its conservation, heritage, or agricultural values.
The work of land trusts is made possible by the generosity of people like you.
A land trust can permanently protect land to preserve its natural, environmental, recreational, scenic, historical, or agricultural importance. Land trusts or land conservancies are independent, charitable organizations that work with private landowners to preserve open space and nature. Acquisition of properties is subject to board approval and negotiation of management agreements. Land trusts accept donations and bequests of land and conservation agreements and, in some cases, may purchase land or conservation agreements. The land is then protected from that time on. The HTLTC is a volunteer organization with a community board of directors. The Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy gives people a safe, reliable, long-term way to leave financial contributions or bequests of real property for the protection of land, water, and habitat for generations to come. The Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy can protect important nature areas for the long term, with the help of “an inspired community that values and protects natural lands and habitat.” For more information visit the Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy website.
