The North Bay – Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA) is responsible in part or whole for preserving 15 properties around the region that represent the area’s unique natural beauty and/or are of ecological significance.
Many of the NBMCA's Conservation Areas provide recreational opportunities such as hiking, picnicking, photography, bird watching and canoeing, allowing the public to interact with nature and the great outdoors. Please note that with the exception of the Kinsmen Trail and sections of Kate Pace Way, the NBMCA's Conservation Areas are relatively rugged and proper footwear is recommended.
In 1980, the NBMCA acquired the Corbeil Conservation Area for flood plain control as the land includes part of the historic LaVase River and its floodplain. Recognizing its unique ecological features, the NBMCA developed a self-guided, 3.4 kilometer trail which leads visitors across numerous boardwalks and through a variety of landscapes.
Shirley Skinner Memorial Nature Preserve, a highlight of the J.P Webster Nature Preserve is a number of bright green boulders scattered throughout the property. The green colour is derived from the lichens that live on the rock's surface. The Conservation Area is currently unmarked with no formal trails. Please contact the NBMCA at (705) 474-5420 for more information.
