McGeachy Pond Conservation Area is a 15 hectare property acquired by the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority in 1974. It is a memorial to the late William A. McGeachy. Provincially significant wetland, lakeshore waterfowl habitat.
There is an observation platform in the conservation area for viewing the lake and the pond area. Excellent for wildfowl watching. Open for dayuse from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., all year, free of charge.
The LTVCA has acquired land in the watershed (see watershed map) to protect environmentally sensitive lands, wetlands, culturally unique features such as the Ska-Nah-Doht Iroquoian Village and significant biological, ecological, historical and scenic qualities from development. Over 1,000 acres of conservation land have been preserved at 20 sites for public use across the LTVCA watershed. It is estimated that well over 1,000,000 people have made use of all the conservation lands over the years. The Lower Thames Valley Conservation Foundation helps to support the programs and facilities offered at these conservation lands. Volunteer groups are valuable partners, assisting the LTVCA with local initiatives, projects and events. Conservation Education programs are offered at several park locations.
