At the core of our work lies a commitment to nature. That commitment is shared by a province-wide network of groups and individuals.

This dedicated network of 150 local conservation groups helps us identify and engage with local issues that have a provincial significance. The Nature Network is our eyes and ears on the ground. Together, we lead grassroots conservation initiatives are a powerful voice for nature. Many of our conservation initiatives would not be possible without the help of the Nature Network member groups.

“Over the years, Conservation Ontario and Ontario Nature have collaborated on initiatives related to the conservation and restoration of natural systems which support watershed and community resilience and strengthen the health of Ontario’s economy.”

Angela Coleman, General Manager, Conservation Ontario

“Any conservation group trying to protect the environment soon learns how difficult it can be to amplify your message and achieve your goals without support. Ontario Nature has helped elevate Eagle Lake Farabout Peninsula Coalition’s concerns and bring them to the forefront through consultation, on-site visits, data gathering, strategizing and publicity of Farabout articles. This organization has been invaluable to the evolution of our group and our achievements over the years.”

Dale MacKenzie, Co-Chair, Eagle Lake Farabout Peninsula Coalition
