More Information

About Fishing Lake Property (Inverary)

This 7.41 acre (3.00 ha.) property is one piece of a block of NCC properties, all situated around Loughborough Lake, 14 km north of Inverary. The area is made up of rugged wetland and forest habitats, hosting species such as the pickerel frog, American beaver, chimney swift and snapping turtle. This property holds 1 km of shoreline on Fishing Lake, one of the last remaining lakes in the area with no shoreline development.

NCC acquired Fishing Lake with the assistance of the Government of Canada’s Natural Areas Conservation Program (NACP), a unique public-private partnership to accelerate the pace of land conservation across southern Canada.


What you will be doing

Participants will be manually carrying and moving rubbish and old building materials from the building footprint at the shoreline of Fishing Lake on NCC’s newest acquisition.

Why you will love it

What can be more satisfying than returning a beautiful forest to it’s former glory by removing years worth of rubbish and garbage? Participants at this event will see first hand the results of their hard work.
