EUGENIA FALLS MANAGEMENT PLAN
The Grey Sauble Conservation Authority is in the process of developing a Management Plan for the Eugenia Falls Conservation Area and Arboretum. This Plan will guide the management of this property over the next 10 to 20 years.
Why we need a Management Plan
Recreational tourism, particularly on the Bruce Peninsula, is becoming increasingly more popular. Due, in part, to social media coverage, many locations within our region, including the Peninsula, are experiencing unprecedented numbers of visitors. The Eugenia Falls Conservation Area is located directly on the travel corridor from the GTA to the Bruce Peninsula. As interest in the Peninsula continues to grow, Eugenia Falls Conservation Area is expected to continue to experience ever increasing visitor traffic.
The Eugenia Falls property is also extremely popular with local citizens, who recognize the value of this unique local treasure.
This plan is required to address future public use demands and to enhanced environmental protection. Furthermore, it is necessary to prepare a comprehensive and integrated management plan for the property that can respond to the changes in the availability of public funds and evolving concepts in conservation and sustainability. The plan is intended to match Grey Sauble Conservation Authority’s vision of a healthy watershed environment in balance with the needs of society.
Over the last couple of years Grey Sauble Conservation Authority has received feedback from the general public, neighbours and partners through an online survey, phone calls, and emails.
A first draft of the management plan for the property was developed and reviewed by the Advisory Committee, made up of members from the community, partner groups and different levels of government. This draft was also presented at an open house in November 2022 and additional feedback was received at that time.
