MISSION STATEMENT

The Lake Superior Watershed Conservancy (LSWC) is a charitable non-profit organization in Canada and in the United States. The LSWC works as a basin-wide resource hub that collaborates with a network of people dedicated to the protection of the Lake Superior watershed. The LSWC facilitates, collects, and shares basin-wide research to create a broader picture of the overall health of Lake Superior that can be used to further conservation initiatives such as water trails and land trusts.

The LSWC’s Vision is a healthy Lake Superior watershed sustained through basin-wide initiatives for future generations.  Our Mission is to inspire and empower people and communities to protect the Lake Superior ecosystem.

The LSWC owns three land trusts, and is the organization that oversees and implements the 1,000-km Lake Superior Water Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail)  The trails on land and water offer physical, spiritual, social, cultural and economic connections to Lake Superior for the people and communities that encircle the Lake.
