This is our Oak Ridges Moraine. And this is your Land Trust.


We would not be here without your support.  

Together with caretakers and caring donors like you, we have protected 60 properties on the Oak Ridges Moraine, totaling 4,480 acres of precious habitat. With your support, we’re working every day to protect more properties, sensitive habitats and Nature Reserves for wild and at-risk species that live here. You’re also helping to expand public green spaces with partners where neighbours can hike, bike, ski and more!


A note about changes to our programs:

Our Land Trust has a large network made up of partners, volunteers, and the attendees of our events. It is important to us to do everything that we can to keep our community safe and to help limit the spread of the virus. Please note that while the ORMLT office has been closed until further notice, Land Trust employees are working from home. Some in-person events are being reintroduced with the addition of an ORMLT COVID-19 Event Protocol. Thank you for your understanding on this matter, and for your support of our Land Trust and the work we do on the Oak Ridges Moraine.



Every single gift we receive helps us protect more property on our beautiful Moraine. Thank you for your kind and caring support!


You’re invited to join our BioBlitz activities where you are welcome to explore our protected forests, rivers and fields to monitor species of trees, flowers, birds and more! At our events, you can also learn more about climate change and what you can do about it, while learning about what you can do in your own backyard to help our Moraine!


You can explore our Moraine using our interactive map. You can also learn more about wild and at-risk species here on the Moraine, and about the habitats where they thrive. Start your virtual tour of our beautiful Moraine, and we hope it inspires you to get outside on our Moraine soon!
