Welcome to the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority

The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority's overall goal is the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources on a watershed basis while providing for the public enjoyment of the lands it oversees.

The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) was formed in October 1946 under the Conservation Authorities Act and is one of the oldest conservation authorities in Ontario.

The watersheds of the GRCA covers an area of 361 square miles from Wilmot Creek in Clarington to east of Cobourg from the south shore of Rice Lake down to Lake Ontario. This area includes seven municipalities in whole or in part: Township of Cavan-Monaghan, Town of Cobourg, Township of Alnwick-Haldimand, Township of Hamilton, Municipality of Port Hope, City of Kawartha Lakes, Municipality of Clarington.


Ganaraska Forest Cross-Country Ski and Snowshoe Trail Update (January 12 2018): The trails are open. The Yellow Trail has been groomed and the Blue Trail has been packed. The Orange trail system remains closed due to logging.

For up-to-date conditions, please call the Ganaraska Forest Centre directly at 905.797.2721. 

Please note that the GFC Canteen is closed until further notice.
