Ensuring a Land Legacy
Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy
What is the Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy?
Your Environmental Trust
The Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy (HTLTC) is a new land trust created in 2011 by the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation, a registered Canadian charity. The HTLTC is a volunteer organization with a separate board of directors. The Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy gives people in the Huron Tract area a way to make a positive difference by helping protect and restore land, water, and nature.
The Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy gets its name and geographic boundaries from the days of early settlement in this part of Ontario. The Huron Tract was purchased by the Canada Company, an agent of the British government, to be distributed to colonial settlers of Upper Canada.
Land trusts, also known as land conservancies, are charitable organizations that, as all or part of their mission, actively work to conserve land with natural, recreational, scenic, historical or agricultural value. Land trusts accept donations and bequests of land and conservation agreements and in some cases, may purchase land or conservation agreements. The land is then permanently protected to preserve its conservation, heritage, or agricultural values. The work of land trusts is made possible by the generosity of people like you.
