Magnetawan Watershed Land Trust received the 2016 Ontario Land Trust Alliance’s Land Trust Achievement Award!  This award recognizes the land trust for outstanding achievements in fulfilling their mission from a conservation and community outreach perspective.
In July 2015 lyme disease researchers, Katie Clow, Jocelyn Pitcher, and Lorene Jeantet conducted an active tick surveillance on the Old Man’s Creek Reserve.  The study found no black-legged ticks, and concluded that the risk of lyme disease in this area is low.
