The weather system that swept through Southern Ontario on Saturday afternoon has resulted in significant tree damage in a number of conservation areas in the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority watershed.
As a result, we have closed the following conservation areas to the public effective immediately:
•Durham Region Forest – all tracts
•Pangman Springs (Kennedy Road entrance)
We ask that people stay away from these locations until further notice. We are working diligently on repairs which include the use of heavy equipment and chain saws – it is important the public stay away for their own safety and to allow us to do this work.
We know how important these natural areas are to residents and will do our best to get them open, but safety is our priority at this time. Updates will be provided on social media when they become available.
Our mission is to collaborate to protect and restore the Lake Simcoe watershed with innovative research, policy and action.
