What is a Land Trust?
A land trust is a non-government, charitable organization whose sole purpose is conservation. In the case of the Lake Clear Conservancy (LCC), our conservation focus is the natural heritage and water quality of Lake Clear and the Bonnechere River Watershed, of which Lake Clear is a part. Land trusts can own land outright and can also hold conservation easements, donated by private landowners who want to protect their land but want to retain ownership. Properties owned by the LCC are held in perpetuity for public benefit and for the enjoyment of future generations. The LCC also promotes good environmental practices by providing relevant information to landowners, campers, and other lake users.
Alone, we can do so little;
together, we can do so much.

Protecting Lake Clear
In 1998, a small group of concerned people met to discuss ways to preserve and protect the natural beauty, water quality, and wildlife of Lake Clear. The result of that meeting was the Lake Clear Conservancy, an all-volunteer, non-government, charitable organization. The LCC is working for everyone who loves Lake Clear. We are your local, community land trust, and we hope you will join us.

The Lake Clear Conservancy is your community land trust. Together we can preserve, maintain and improve the things we all love and enjoy - crystal clear waters, magnificent views, unspoiled islands and scenic shorelines. Clean water and unspoiled wilderness are rare; Lake Clear is a treasure. The LCC is a means for everyone who values these qualities to work together in a coordinated manner.
