Did you know that MWLT is on iNaturalist? Go explore nature and let us know what you see using the iNaturalist program. If you don’t have iNaturalist already, it is easy to download the app to your phone (or any device). Take a photo of wild plants or animals and any observation you make within our boundary will automatically be added. However, make sure we are "trusted" with your coordinates. To do this:


Please head over to our project and ensure that this is still the case! To do this go to: 

1) Magnetawan Watershed Land Trust project 
2) Join Project (If you've joined in the past, make sure you still are!) 
3) Click * Your Membership* 
4) Click Yes (if you want!) to receive journal notifications 
5) Click Yes, for any of my observations under "Trust this project with hidden coordinates". 
6) Click Save!


The iNaturalist app will help you with the identifications, so it's a great tool to learn about the species around you. Your input will contribute towards conservation initiatives for MWLT in the Magnetawan River watershed.

Be sure to keep an eye on our social media feed and website for challenges (we may even have a fun prize!). Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We can be reached at 

Annual General Meeting

McKellar Community Centre, McKellar

Magnetawan Watershed Land Trust is hosting its Annual Meeting on Saturday, July 27th at 2:00 pm, held at the McKellar Community Centre and will feature special guest speaker Alex Mills.

Alex is a Professor in the Biology Department at Toronto's York University, where he teaches Ornithology and Conservation Biology, among other courses. His research interests focus on night birds and on bird migration, and some of that work has been conducted in the Magnetawan watershed. He has been a lifelong seasonal resident at Ahmic Lake.

Alex's talk title is the Birds of Two Worlds. He will speak about the Magnetawan bird community, how it changes seasonally, and how some of our favourite birds cope with the dramatic seasonal changes we experience in this part of the world. 

Everyone is welcome to come to the meeting, however only members will be able to vote. You can become a member at

Waste-free snacks and refreshments will be provided.

This live event will be held at the McKellar Community Centre.
