Cooper Marsh Conservators


In 1997, volunteers formed the Cooper Marsh Conservators (CMC) to help in the protection, conservation, education and restoration of Cooper Marsh Conservation Area. In 2008, it became a registered charity. The CMC includes members from the general public, business community, River Institute, and Cornwall and Area Birding Club. The Raisin Region Conservation Authority and CMC collaborate to achieve the goals and management objectives for Cooper Marsh.

The CMC aims to raise awareness of the importance of all wetlands and support the education programs that are run at Cooper Marsh.  CMC's fundraising efforts have helped offset a portion of the Marsh’s annual operating costs and have enabled the major restoration of the Marsh's boardwalks, the creation of new viewing platforms, blinds for wildlife observation, habitat enhancements, and more. 

Visit the CMC website and follow them on Facebook for more information and learn how you can get involved!  (Website coming soon.)
