protecting the land we love for future generations
With support from our community, our volunteers and our members, the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust is focused on conservation and protection of the natural heritage of Haliburton County. We currently own, manage and protect 5 properties totalling 1,200 acres of forest, wetlands and open areas with a further 100 acres under a conservation easement agreement. Two of our properties (Dahl Forest and Barnum Creek Nature Reserve) are open to the public for hiking and enjoyment of the natural world. Our research and educational pursuits are aimed at having a positive effect on our environment and our community. We hope that our efforts will empower future generations to embrace and take an active role in habitat conservation in order to build resiliency to climate change and prevent biodiversity loss.
