Conservation authorities across the province protect the environment on a watershed basis. Because our land and water resources are connected and impact each other, managing these resources on a watershed basis is recognized as the best way to protect the environment.

Within the physical and economic context of the watershed and in consideration of the social, cultural and economic aspirations of its residents, Otonabee Conservation delivers programs and services that support the sustainability of the environment.

Otonabee Conservation works with its member municipalities and watershed residents to achieve outcomes that balance the diversity of needs and local conservation priorities.
