South Nation Conservation Celebrates 75 Years of Conservation
South Nation Conservation (SNC) is thrilled to be celebrating 75 years of conservation in 2022.
Established under the Conservation Authorities Act of Ontario in 1947, SNC has decades of practical experience protecting our environment and engaging communities while working on behalf of 16 member municipalities in Eastern Ontario.
This work includes managing 20,000 acres of community land, planting over 200,000 trees each year, monitoring and reporting on watershed health, and protecting people and property from flooding, erosion, and landslides.
To commemorate this significant milestone, SNC will be hosting some celebratory events throughout 2022 to highlight how our water resource management and the stewardship of our conservation lands have helped form and contribute to a Living Natural Legacy.
Some of the activities are new initiatives and others are community favourites, such as:
- Take a Hike – 75km Challenge – Year-Long
