Please join the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust to learn more about our exciting new initiative to protect the Highlands Corridor. This area is a significant wildlife corridor covering over 100,000 hectares of unceded public and private land connecting three provincial parks: Queen Elizabeth II, Kawartha Highlands and Silent Lake. Rich with wetlands, forest, wildlife communities, species at risk and deep carbon deposits, the Highlands Corridor offers a nature-based solution to building climate change resilience, protecting lands and waters, and maintaining biodiversity.
Wildlife Biologist, Paul Heaven, will present a review of the ecological significance and values of the Highlands Corridor. Land Trust Chair, Shelley Hunt, will explain the Land Trust’s strategies for protecting this valuable corridor.
Shelley will also thank MPP Laurie Scott for her government’s support through the Ontario Trillium Foundation for a grant to develop a new strategic plan for the Land Trust. Through that strategic planning process, the Land Trust has affirmed its goal of being a leader and organizer of research and support for the Highlands Corridor initiative.
Learn how you can help support the protection of this important wildlife corridor in Haliburton County. Protecting the Highlands Corridor is a wonderful opportunity to contribute to Canada’s commitment of protecting 30% of lands and waters by 2030.
