Lve the Lower Trent Watershed
Wherever you are, you are in a watershed! A watershed is the area of land that drains to a common waterway.
The Lower Trent Watershed is indeed a very special place. Our region is blessed with abundant lands, renowned waterways, remarkable flora and treasured wildlife. Residents and visitors alike cherish the Lower Trent Watershed for many reasons including the 1,540 hectares of fresh air, clean water and exceptional outdoor spaces.
The core of our region is the majestic Trent River, which winds its way from Rice Lake through the rolling hills of Northumberland into Hastings County, draining into the beautiful Bay of Quinte, and eventually Lake Ontario. Numerous species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish call the Lower Trent Watershed their home.
As a non-profit registered charity, Lower Trent Conservation invites you to join our quest to protect and preserve the natural beauty of this watershed for now and future generations.
