Kawartha Land Trust (KLT) is conserving the natural environment and enhancing the quality of life in the Kawarthas. They do this by accepting donations of land and/or interests in land and engaging the community in support of this work to ensure that these lands are cared for, in perpetuity.
KLT is collaborating with BCWA as they share similar goals and objectives regarding conservation of natural heritage in the region. They recognize that protecting natural heritage requires collaboration between communities and from the people living in those communities.
KLT and BCWA know that working collaboratively can achieve greater impact. KLT is working with BCWA within the Baxter Creek watershed to achieve a connected landscape. Both organizations recognize the intrinsic ecological values of publicly accessible open green spaces and the benefit of the ecosystem services they provide to people.
KLT recognizes the intrinsic ecological value of the former Millbrook Jail Lands as an open public greenspace. KLT is actively supporting BCWA towards a community engagement strategy to acquire and protect the property. The KLT letter of support for this initiative can be downloaded and read here.
Trout Unlimited Millbrook is a new chapter for Trout Unlimited located in the Cavan Monaghan area.

The goal of the chapter is to bring existing groups and residents together to work collectively to maintain and in some areas improve a stream system .
Trout Unlimited Millbrook supports the BCWA's initiative to protected the former Millbrook Jail Lands which is the source of at least one, if not two, cold water tributaries of Baxter Creek. To demonstrate this support, Trout Unlimited wrote a letter of support for the Old Millbrook Jail Lands Association and the vision BCWA has for the property.
