The Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation was founded in 1998 with the goals of protecting and restoring Lake Huron’s coastal environment and promoting a healthy coastal ecosystem.
While many environmental advocacy groups address local issues within the region, the Coastal Centre is the only grassroots organization focused on protecting the coastal environment lake-wide. The Centre has conducted projects and outreach initiatives along the shorelines of Lake Huron, Southern Georgian Bay and Southern Manitoulin Island. Given the wide geographic scope of our operations, the Centre uses its web presence extensively to provide guidance and educational resources on a number of our key priority areas.
The Coastal Centre also recognizes that its work has to include the economic and social dimensions of sustainability. The Coastal Centre believes that coastal communities cannot have a healthy economy unless they have a healthy environment. To achieve this, the Coastal Centre uses a science-based approach to link academic researchers, local and regional politicians, resource managers, cottagers and municipal staff to improve decision-making and inspire environmental action to safeguard and improve the lake ecosystem.
