HOW WE PROTECT LAND

MWLT provides landowners with options to permanently conserve and protect their land.  We aim to permanently protect private land with natural, historical, scenic, and/or recreational value for the benefit of the community.  This is done by acquiring land, or interests in land in the following ways:

  • accepting donations of land

  • purchasing land

  • partial donation and partial purchase of land

  • accepting conservation easements on land

Acquired lands are managed to ensure permanent protection through a volunteer Stewardship Program.  Management typically includes ongoing monitoring and signage; additional work is only conducted as necessary to protect significant values.  Properties with conservation easements are managed slightly differently as a much more structured annual monitoring routine is required.

The Magnetawan Watershed Land Trust is a member of the Ontario Land Trust Alliance (OLTA). The OLTA supports one of the largest land trust communities in the world, promoting land conservation and preservation that protects critical environmental assets, endangered species, and benefits Ontario communities. The alliance represents 120,000 individuals and members working together to protect over 90,000 acres of land with both of these numbers growing every year. OLTA promotes and assists our members and associates through training, education, and communications, as we collectively connecting communities, promoting land trusts, and acting to influence policy and support stakeholders.
