Local Leadership at Island Lake Conservation Area

The Friends of Island Lake were established in 2005 as a fundraising committee under the Credit Valley Conservation Foundation. The Friends were formed to enhance community involvement and awareness of the need to expand the current trail system at Island Lake Conservation Area. The Friends of Island Lake are local residents and community members dedicated to ensuring that the community and its visitors benefit from quality educational, interpretive and recreational opportunities at Island Lake Conservation Area.

The Friends of Island Lake officially meet four times per year in Orangeville. To learn more about how you can volunteer or get involved, please contact Sharlene Hardwar at sharlene.hardwar@cvc.ca or 905-670-1615 x557
