Fun in Ontario Conservation Areas

Protecting natural resources within Ontario's watersheds was the driving force to create Conservation Authorities in 1946. Fragile river ecosystems were always in jeopardy from development, resource extractions and the extreme force of flash-floods resulting from ever increasing asphalt surfaces and storm sewers . The 36 Ontario Authorities are tasked with conserving and restoring the natural environment while managing the areas for responsible and sustainable use by park visitors, locally we have the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
There are 250 conservation areas, or parks owned by the non-profit Authorities, in Ontario, with 25 conservation areas within 50km of Toronto City Hall - places like Hilton Falls, Heart Lake and Black Creek Pioneer Village.
