Each year, through our enduring partnership with Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, the Foundation supports many environmental programs and projects that help support our vision of a cleaner and healthier Lake Simcoe watershed.

These programs and projects support our objectives:

  • Improve water quality and fish habitat in Lake Simcoe, its rivers and streams
  • Provide environmental education to Lake Simcoe watershed residents
  • Reduce invasive aquatic plant growth in Lake Simcoe, its rivers and streams
  • Protect and enhance our green spaces and wetlands
  • Develop partnerships that promote lake Simcoe watershed science, education and public awareness

Typically, this would include tree and shrub planting, stream bank restoration, fish habitat restoration, wildlife protection and the outdoor education of our children. These are executed  throughout our watershed. Occasionally, capital investments like the 2016 purchase of a new research boat for Lake Simcoe, the Hexagenia, are made.
