Let’s preserve the “Heart” of Lakefield Estate! 

Conservation Lakefield has launched a fundraising campaign to purchase and protect the “Heart of the Estate”. Shown in the map below, this beautiful forested area is zoned for development, including a new road and new homes.
Conservation Lakefield has already amassed significant funds from federal, provincial and private donations. We have a total of $883,000 but we are still $103,000 short of our goal. 
We need your help to halt further development in the beautiful Heart of the Estate. Please, join your neighbours and make a donation or pledge to Conservation Lakefield before October 31. All amounts are welcome and tax receipts will be issued. Help us save this valuable land for future generations.
Still have questions? Email us at for more information. Our team will be happy to interact with you personally, by email, phone, in person or by Zoom, just let us know!

About the Partenariat pour les milieux naturels project (PPMN)

The Partenariat pour les milieux naturels project (PPMN) is a co-funding agreement established between the Ministere de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MELCC) and the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Quebec Region from 2020 to 2023. The PPMN aims to develop the network of protected areas located on private land through protection and knowledge acquisition activities, the establishment of nature reserves and the enhancement of natural environments.

About the Natural Heritage Conservation Program

The Natural Heritage Conservation Program (NHCP) is a public-private partnership designed to advance privately protected areas in some of the country’s most cherished landscapes. Launched with a $100 million investment from the Government of Canada the program is administered by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), with contributions from partners like Ducks Unlimited Canada and the country’s land trusts. Wildlife Habitat Canada administers the land trust portion of the program, the Land Trust Conservation Program. NCC will work with the program partners to identify land for conservation and raise the funds to match the government’s investment 2:1.
