Description & Services
Description (Agency) Environmental organization ensuring the preservation of a unique 900+ acre nature reserve which provides a natural laboratory for scientific study, related education and passive recreation programs
Description (Service) The rare Charitable Research Reserve is a 900+ acre urban land trust and environmental institute in Waterloo Region/ Wellington. Since inception, the rare has taken care of the land on behalf of the community through the use of Western tools in conservation, research, and education. As rare becomes engaged in reconciliation with the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island (North America), these pillars will equally include and value Indigenous ways of knowing and being — to become three strands of a strong braid. Together we will steward these lands with respect for generations pasts, present, and those yet to come, intact in perpetuity with trees more than 250 years old, 24 habitat types, and 6 of 8 pre-settlement landscapes.
