The impetus for the Watershed Trust’s formation came from the Blue Mountain Watershed Conference held in May of 1993. The Hon. David Crombie, P.C. was the keynote speaker. The purpose of the conference was “To develop awareness and promote partnerships that are required in order to successfully implement watershed planning in the Blue Mountain watersheds”.
Two landowner meetings in 1994 led to the formation of the Blue Mountain Watershed Trust Foundation (BMWTF), the first watershed trust in the Province of Ontario. The Watershed Trust is now an independent grass-roots organization. We are an all-volunteer organization supported by donations and fundraising; we do not receive funding from any level of government. The Watershed Trust was incorporated in 1995 and is a Registered Charity (#89079 8259 RR 0001). We currently have over 150 members.
