Protect Your Share of Lost Bay

Join us in the work of protecting even more of one of Ontario’s most biodiverse regions. We have a time-limited opportunity to acquire a critical land link at Lost Bay Nature Reserve – making two protected spaces into one and creating one of Ontario Nature’s largest reserves. We urgently need your help to raise $250,000 to secure this vital piece of Lost Bay – home to 24 species at risk. By clicking here, you can make a secure online gift to help. Together we can protect even more of one of our province’s most important ecological treasures forever.

New Greenway Guide Released

Released this spring, Ontario Nature's Best Practices Guide to Natural Heritage Systems Planning promotes municipal greenway planning: a strategic approach to land use planning which addresses biodiversity loss and prepare planners for the uncertainties of climate change. The Guide draws on over 50 strong examples from 23 municipalities. These policies help protect and enhance the many benefits that nature provides – things like flood control, pollination, water purification, improved air quality, and much more. The Guide can be downloaded at no charge here. For more information, please contact Joshua Wise
