Lower Trent Conservation

  1. Annual Report 

2018 Message  

2018 was a golden year for Lower Trent Conservation as we celebrated 50 years of Conservation! Formed in 1968, at the request of local municipalities, Lower Trent Conservation proudly serves the localcommunity, working to protect the natural assets of the watershed region and safeguarding both people and property from natural hazards like flooding and erosion.
In addition to our 50th celebration event, we held an online “selfie” contest promoting our conservation areas and released our ‘50 in 50’ blog series, highlighting our 50 year history. We commemoratedthis milestone year with 50th themed promotional items, throwback feature content on our website and social media, a video, and a mobile display, which were shared throughout our watershed community.
We also released our 2018 Conservation Report, the sequel to the 1970 Conservation Report that was written just after Lower Trent Conservation was formed. The new Conservation Report takes thereader back in time to the early days of conservation in the region. More importantly, it provides an overview of the Lower Trent watershed region, our programs, services and priorities. 
The year was a time for reflecting on the past, but also of looking to the future. We released our new Strategic Plan (2018 - 2028), which sets out our vision of Healthy Watersheds for Healthy Communitiesand our mission: To protect land, water and living things by working with and inspiring others. This new strategic plan will guide the efforts of Lower Trent Conservation as it endeavours to respond to thechallenges and opportunities ahead.
Take a glance at this Annual Report to learn all about the other exciting things we accomplished in 2018, like enlarging our watershed jurisdiction within the Municipality of Trent Hills and expanding ourwater quality monitoring program.
We are proud of our accomplishments in 2018, and even more so of how far we have come since our formation a half century ago.
