The mission of the Algoma Highlands Conservancy (AHC) is to conserve and protect the unique beauty and ecological integrity of key areas within the Algoma Highlands region of Northern Ontario. The AHC strives to protect the ecological function and habitat requirements of native plant and animal species in these areas, while encouraging human access and visitation through low-impact recreation to enhance awareness and understanding.
The AHC is a group of like-minded individuals who voluntarily contribute their time, energy and skills to a variety of projects related to our fundamental principals – conservation, silent sport recreation, environmental education and research. We are a bi-national, not-for-profit group, with charitable organization status in both Canada and the USA.
About ALGOMA HIGHLANDS CONSERVANCY
On November 30, 2009 the AHC officially secured the spectacular and ecologically sensitive 2600 ac King Mountain Property, which consolidated our protected land base to 3000 ac total!
At this time, our focus is to pay down the $300,000 loan we took out to purchase the land for a total of $1.5 million by the strict November 2009 deadline.
Through partnerships, your generosity and our collective effort, we hope to eliminate this debt, as well as raise an endowment fund for future stewardship and management costs of the conserved land. Please help us keep these areas healthy and accessible for current and future generations to enjoy!
There is also the potential now more than ever to further our goals relating to silent sport recreation, environmental education, and scientific research. In all of these endeavours, the AHC is committed to remaining principally focused on conservation and environmental protection.
We are deeply appreciative of your generosity and support!
