Lindsay, Ontario


Kawartha Conservation is a watershed-based, non-profit organization established in 1979 by the municipalities within our watershed under the Ontario Conservation Authorities Act. We are one of 36 conservation authorities operating in Ontario and a member of Conservation Ontario.

Balancing environmental capacity and human need, we manage natural resource features that are essential for sustaining water quality and quantity, through watershed planning, stewardship, environmental monitoring and research, and management of conservation and natural areas.

Our programs and services are focused within the natural boundaries of the Kawartha watershed, which extend from Lake Scugog in the southwest and Pigeon Lake in the east, to Balsam Lake in the northwest and Crystal Lake in the northeast – a total of 2,563 square kilometres.

These natural boundaries overlap the six municipalities that govern Kawartha Conservation through representation on our Board of Directors. Our municipal partners include the City of Kawartha Lakes, the Township of Scugog, the Township of Brock, the Municipality of Clarington, the Municipality of Trent Lakes, and the Township of Cavan Monaghan.

The fee for parking at Ken Reid Conservation Area is $2.00 per day, or annual parking passes are available at the Kawartha Conservation Administration Centre for $75.00 or $60.00 (Senior rate) and are valid for one year from date of purchase. 

Howlers Corners Off-leash Dog Park

Howlers Corners is open every day from 7 am to 9 pm (8 am to 6 pm from November to April).

You will need to bring your own water, and remember to bring baggies and pick up after their dogs. Baggies will be available if you forget.

All of the rules of the run are posted at the park, and enforcement staff will be on site periodically to ensure visitors are following them.
