Geocache Description:



This cache has been sponsored by South Nation Conservation (SNC).

 

SNC is one of 36 conservation authorities in Ontario. SNC focuses on a variety of conservation practices within the South Nation watershed. see map: (SNC Watershed)

SNC is an environmental organization that works closely with its member municipalities, government, individual landowners and various community groups to maintain and improve the natural resources within its watershed. SNC works with its partners to ensure that the SNC watershed has healthy, accessible forests and recreational areas, abundant fish and wildlife, natural shorelines and enough clean water for now and for the future.

In order to ensure and improve the continued health of the watershed, SNC:

- Plants thousands of trees for landowners to help filter pollution, clean our water, and prevent soil loss
- Maintains and improves 8000 hectares of public forests
- Operates seven parks and conservation areas as well as trails, boat launches, and canoe routes for the enjoyment of the public
- Ensures that development, including new housing, is environmentally responsible and does not endanger lives
- Monitors the quality and quantity of water resources and tracks long-term changes to ensure a safe supply of clean water
- Physically removes environmental and navigational hazards from the river
- operates water control structures to moderate river flow and prevent flooding
- Improves the fisheries and fish habitat of the South Nation so our fish species do not disappear.

Species at risk biologists at SNC are conducting a rare turtle study within the South Nation watershed, maintaining information on 6 species of turtle (snapping turtle is included, but painted turtle is not). If you see a turtle in your travels that might be at risk, you are encouraged to snap a picture of it (and GPS coordinates if possible) and to contact the SAR biologists at SNC. More information regarding the turtle study can be found at: (English Poster) (French Poster)
