The Oak Ridges Moraine is one of Ontario’s most important ecological landforms. As your Land Trust, we will help you protect it – forever

Together with caretakers and caring donors, we have protected 67 properties on the Oak Ridges Moraine, totaling 5,269 acres of precious habitat. With your support, we can protect even more.


Take Action

You’re invited to join our BioBlitz activities to explore our protected forests, rivers and fields to discover species of trees, flowers, birds and more! At our events, you can also learn 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. Come out and help us restore habitats for species at risk, or volunteer as a Property Steward. There are lots of ways you can take action. 


Every single gift we recieve helps us protect and steward more natural areas on and near our beautiful Moraine, forever. Thank you for your kind and caring support!

Climate Change

With climate change comes many challenges. The Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust is building resilience on the Ontario landscape by providing permanent protection of natural lands across the Moraine, allowing species adaptation and migration.
