The Algoma Highlands Conservancy

About Us

Our mission is to conserve the beauty and ecological integrity of key areas within the Algoma Highlands region.

The roughly 2900 acres (1180 ha) we currently own includes the western half of King Mountain, which rises about 1200 feet (365 m) above Lake Superior and features a 400-feet (125 m) drop off to the Goulais River Valley in the form of the iconic Robertson Cliffs. These spectacular land forms are cloaked in a mosaic of mature hardwood forests, cliffs, streams, ponds and wetlands,  and home to a variety of wildlife including wolves, lynx, moose, bear, peregrine falcons and a variety of flora including several rare plant species.

Our lands offer an extensive network of trails that are open year-round for low-impact recreational use, such as:

  • Bird watching
  • Photography
  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Snowshoeing
  • Skiing
  • Trail running

Come commune with nature, clear the mind, soothe the soul and join us in our efforts to protect this local treasure for future generations.

Our education programs are aimed at promoting conservation, while we contribute to a better understanding of local ecosystems though collaborative research projects.
