Otonabee Conservation owned conservation lands (conservation areas, wildlife areas and forest areas) were originally acquired for purposes of water management, scientific research, fish and wildlife habitat, forestry, recreation and conserving areas of significant natural and cultural heritage.  Outdoor recreation has been an important aspect of many of these lands whether in a primary or secondary capacity, providing countless hours of enjoyment for watershed residents and visitors to the area.  Conservation Lands contribute significantly to the social, environmental and economic health of the community.

Hunting, trapping and fishing are three important components of Otonabee Conservation’s Outdoor Recreation Program.  With increasing demand for outdoor recreation and mounting pressure on our fish and wildlife resources, it is very important for Otonabee Conservation to manage its lands and natural resources carefully.

Cooperation between Otonabee Conservation and the Ministry of Natural Resources along with the other levels of government, various environmental agencies, organizations and the watershed residents will assist Otonabee Conservation in making sound management decisions associated with hunting, trapping and fishing on conservation lands.
