Our Mission

Protecting and caring for Muskoka's natural spaces.

Nature conservation is our mission at Muskoka Conservancy, and we'd like your help. Together, we can engage more community partners and private landowners to keep Muskoka natural.

Not only that, we offer outdoor experiences and informative programming that inspires caring for nature in Muskoka.

Muskoka Conservancy is a volunteer-driven, staff-supported registered charity. Energized volunteers, supporters, and a tiny staff together protect 42 properties consisting of more than 2,700 acres (10.93 km2), over 49,000 ft (15,134 meters) of sensitive shoreline, and over 500 acres of wetland. These properties are protected through direct ownership by the Conservancy, or through legally binding conservation agreements.

Our Vision

We envision a healthy, resilient Muskoka that conserves natural spaces for our own and future generations.

We are Canadian Partners of American Friends of Canadian Conservation!
