Conservation Lands Master Plan

Central Lake Ontario Conservation (CLOCA) owns and manages over 2,700 hectares of environmentally sensitive land across our watershed. These lands are referred to as conservation areas, and with population growth in the community, the demand for our greenspace, trails and nature appreciation has increased significantly. 

In response to this, staff have initiated the CLOCA Conservation Lands Master Plan Study to ensure these public lands continue to meet our original intention to conserve natural features and functions, while providing for compatible high quality visitor experiences that meet the needs of our community. This Master Plan involves a conservation area lands assessment and consultation with the public and stakeholders to ensure we meet the needs of our visitors and our municipal partners now and into the future.
