Healthy Lake Huron


In 2011 a group of dedicated environmental professionals, led by staff from the Ministry of the Environment, gathered together to address environmental issues along Lake Huron with an aim to improve overall water quality along the southeast shores (see main website here).

In so doing, they identified 5 major watersheds which required immediate action.  In SVCA's jurisdiction, this included the PINE RIVER (highlighted to the right in yellow).

Check out the new environmental initiatives below.

Our Watershed - The Pine River

The Pine River has been identified (above), as one of the priority areas requiring immediate environmental action and improvements.

It is located in the southwest area of SVCA's watershed jurisdiction.  Much of this watershed has been cleared for farmland, leaving very little natural cover.

Through MOE funding, the PRWIN (below), together with SVCA and OMAFRA are completing an integrated Watershed Management Plan for the Pine River.

Working with Local Partners - the Pine River Watershed Initiative Network

Over the past number of years, Saugeen Conservation has been working with the Pine River Watershed Initiative Network or PRWIN to raise funds and implement environmental efforts to improve the watershed.
