Ecosystem

All Ecosystems are incrementally weakened as they diminish in size.  Size not only matters, it is critical, bigger is always better. A bigger patch of forest has the ability to host a greater number of species. With the help of The Thousand Islands Watershed Land Trust, the Nature Conservancy of Canada and  CLA/CLEA, roughly 2000 acres of land in and around Charleston Lake has been protected and will remain undeveloped.  These include:
