Conservation Authorities 101

Tammy Cook, Chief Administrative Officer of the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority will discuss the role of the Conservation Authority, its mandate, and what separates it from the mandates of government agencies such as the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, or the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change. She will share some of the challenges in moving towards their new strategic plan, talk about some of the special projects planned or underway, and identify how people can get involved. Tammy will also discuss the circumstances that make the Conservation Authority mission in the Lakehead a unique conservation challenge.
