The Rainy Lake Conservancy is actively involved in conservation efforts in Northwestern Ontario.

The Conservancy’s primary areas of focus are Rainy Lake and its watershed. Here members gather water samples for water quality testing, educate property owners and residents on good shoreline practices, and sponsor bio diversity inventories. Equally important, the Rainy Lake Conservancy works with property owners, governments and local communities, encouraging the conservation of land through a variety of land protection options.

Since the early 1900s, Canadians and Americans have worked together to preserve Rainy Lake’s natural beauty, clean water, abundant plant and wildlife and its rich history (aboriginal, voyageurs, explorers). Rainy Lake is a rare and precious place in a world where forests and clean lakes are rapidly disappearing.
