The Bruce Trail Conservancy acquires Niagara Escarpment land to ensure a secure and permanent conservation corridor.

Many people don't realise that the Bruce Trail is not permanently secure, and that 34% of the Bruce Trail corridor is still vulnerable to development.

As one of Ontario's largest land trust, the BTC is working to secure this corridor by receiving donations of land or by purchasing land.

To date over 11,000 acres of Escarpment land have been preserved by the BTC. Over 10,000 acres of this preserved land are cared for by volunteers of the BTC's Land Stewardship program and with the support of our two staff ecologists.

These acquisitions protect a diverse array of landscape types - wetlands, karst topography, open meadows, caves, towering scarp edges and lush forests - all within the Niagara Escarpment UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
