Conservation Areas

Saugeen Conservation has numerous properties designated as Conservation Areas. These lands provide residents and visitors with facilities and options for recreation and leisure activities (see below).

There are two types of Conservation Areas:

  • Camping Parks
  • Day-Use Parks

In addition to Conservation Areas, the Authority also owns thousands of hectares designated as Conservation Lands.  These consist of:

  • forests and wetlands
  • reforested areas
  • management units

These areas have limited facilities and are to be conserved for the benefit of future generations. These areas function as natural parcels of land which contain features of Saugeen's unique landscape.
