The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority (LRCA) is a community-based environmental agency that provides value-added services to our watershed residents. We are responsible for the wise management of renewable natural resources in our watershed. Conservation Authorities undertake a broad range of programs, including: watershed management, erosion control, flood forecasting & warning, recreation, water level monitoring, plan input & review, environmental education and stewardship. We improve quality of life by actively providing Conservation Areas for semi-passive recreation and environmental education opportunities.
The LRCA proudly offers the community eight Conservation Areas for semi-passive recreational use, access to Lake Superior and other activities such as birding, photography, hiking Wilderness Trails and more! Two of our Forest Management Properties are also open to the public (Mills Block and Wishart). Along with the outdoor recreation and conservation education opportunities offered by our Conservation Areas, we also own and maintain other Conservation Lands that provide habitat protection and assist with water management.
