Leeds-Grenville Stewardship Council

Town: United Counties of Leeds and Grenville

Ontario Nature Region: Ontario East

The Leeds-Grenville Stewardship council was formed in 2011 with the amalgamation of the Leeds County Stewardship Council and the Grenville Land Stewardship Council. The previous councils had been in existence and completed projects for 15 years before the amalgamation. The newly formed council consists of members from the two previous councils and continues to work on many of the projects previously completed seperately.

The goal of the council is to promote stewardship practices in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville. The United Counties are in relatively good shape when compared to many areas of Eastern North America. With still intact forests, and many of our natural wetlands remaining, the area is home to many different species and made up of many different and valuable ecosystems.

The Leeds-Grenville Stewardship Council's main goal is to promote responsible land care and stewardship. We believe in educating and support people in making their own decisions. The Leeds-Grenville Stewardship Council places a high value on volunteer time and effort; seeks projects that meet a defined need in the community and seeks partnerships and cooperative ventures to meet our goals.

The Stewardship Council works with and alongside landowners, farmers and other community members and helps to educate those who are unfamiliar with stewardship practices. The council values all of their partners and knows that without on-the-ground support from the local communities and residences the program would not be the success that it is today.
