Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy
Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy (HTLTC) was created in 2011 by the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation, a registered Canadian charity.
HTLTC is a volunteer organization with a separate board of directors.
The Conservancy gives people in the historic Huron Tract area a way to make a positive difference by helping protect and restore land, water, and nature.
The Trust owns four properties and is interested in acquiring more for the nature preservation benefits they provide to the community.
The Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy gets its name and geographic boundaries from the days of early settlement in this part of Ontario.
Land trusts, also known as land conservancies, are charitable organizations that, as all or part of their mission, actively work to conserve land with natural, recreational, scenic, historical or agricultural value. Land trusts accept donations and bequests of land and conservation agreements and in some cases, may purchase land or conservation agreements.
The land is then permanently protected to preserve its conservation, heritage, or agricultural values. Acquisition of properties is subject to board approval and negotiation of management agreements.
