In 1997, the CMC was formed. Since 2008 it is a registered charity assisting in the protection and promotion of the Cooper Marsh Conservation Area. This volunteer group includes members from the general public, business community, the Raisin Region Conservation Authority, the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences and the Cornwall and Area Birding Club. The CMC aims to raise awareness of the importance of all wetlands and the group’s fundraising efforts help offset a portion of the Marsh’s annual operating costs and have enabled the existing major restoration of the Marshes boardwalks, wildlife breeding habitat and the creation of new viewing platforms to enhance wildlife observation. CMC will continue its present fundraising activities the help offset the Marsh’s annual operating costs and to keep this very important wetland on Lake St. Francis accessible to the public for years to come.
