Where We Work

A landscape of splendid lakes and forests

The Indian River Lakes Region is well known for its stunning lakes and unique geology. Situated on the Frontenac Arch, this landscape plays a key role in geological history and serves as part of a key North American wildlife migration corridor.

Land protection directly supports watershed health!

Conserving land helps to reduce erosion and runoff, reduces pollutant export through filtering, preserves natural flow patterns, and minimizes flooding.

Protecting land for generations to come

At IRLC, we know this area is irreplaceable. Land protection is an important part of water quality protection. We strive to protect land and water for people, for wildlife, forever. 
Fun Fact

Shoreline vegetation not only improves water quality, but it also provides important habitat for fish and wildlife.

Fish rely on fallen logs and branches for shelter, and turtles use them to sunbathe. Plants supply nesting places for birds, as well as food for numerous critters including insects, waterfowl and aquatic mammals.
