Saugeen Conservation has numerous properties designated as Conservation Areas. These lands provide residents and visitors alike with an array of facilities and options with regard to recreation and leisure activities (see below). There are two types of Conservation Areas; Camping Parks and Day-Use Parks.
In addition to Conservation Areas, the Authority also owns thousands of hectares designated as Conservation Lands. These consist of significant forests and wetlands, reforested areas, management units and properties which protect valuable headwater areas. These areas have limited facilities and are to be conserved, preserved and managed for the benefit of future generations. As well, these areas function as natural parcels of land which contain representative features of Saugeen's unique landscape.
