Immersed in Conservation
Our Conservation Assistant's time with us is now complete, and what a summer it as been!
To share some of the work experiences of Cam's term at the Conservancy, he wrote an article for the Orillia Packet & Times to guide you on an adventure through the everyday life of a conservation assistant.
Headwaters are like the foundation of a building, and if they are compromised, so is the entire watershed. If the headwater stream stays cold year-round, it is of primary importance because it provides the larger, lower portions of the river with a steady base flow of clean water.
Fourteen volunteers are now trained and getting out testing our waterways. Learn more about this project on our website.
