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

 

Together with caretakers and caring donors like you, we have protected 59 properties on our Moraine, totaling 4,400 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!

 

Give

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

Action

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!

Explore

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!
