Otonabee Conservation is a locally-focused, community-based environmental agency that protects, restores, and manages the natural resources within the Otonabee Region watershed.

We own 4,000 hectares of Conservation Lands in the Otonabee Region watershed? Some of these lands can be accessed for recreation. More than ever, people are accessing our lands and trails to get exercise, boost mental health, relieve stress, and spend quality time with family.

The beloved JCT needs some TLC so that everyone can continue to safely access the trail and upgrade the trail for increasing numbers of visitors.

The Your Metres Matter fundraising campaign is raising funds to resurface and repair points of erosion on the Jackson Creek Trail, one metre at a time! Each $50 donation will help us revitalize one metre of trail. Help us fix the full 4,500 metres of the Jackson Creek Trail so that it is accessible and safe for all trail users.

Let's upgrade the JCT, making it suitable for a variety of trail users including walking, running, biking, skiing, and universal mobility access.

For donating to the Your Metre Matters campaign ($50+ donations), you will receive a tax receipt, photo card, sticker, and a commemorative Jackson Creek Trail badge to wear proudly while visiting the trail. When you donate $500+ dollars (or 10+ metres of trail), you will be recognized on a new trailhead sign along the JCT.

Donations of $20-$49 will receive a tax receipt, photo card, and JCT sticker.
