Land Stewards

Volunteers are a vital component of our Land Stewardship Program. Volunteer Land Stewards actively care for each of the 230+ properties that are owned or managed by the Bruce Trail Conservancy. As the Bruce Trail Conservancy acquires more land in our efforts to establish a permanent and secure route for the Bruce Trail, our Land Stewardship needs grow.

Annual Monitoring

Annual Monitoring Report Form for Land Stewards

Land Stewards complete this online form to record the results of their visits to the BTC-managed property in their care.
