The Coastal Centre was founded in 1998 with the goals of protecting and restoring Lake Huron's coastal environment and promoting a healthy coastal ecosystem.

While many environmental advocacy groups address local issues within the region, the Coastal Centre is the only grassroots organization focused on protecting the coastal environment lake-wide. Our specific area of concern is the coastline from Sarnia to Tobermory, Manitoulin and south shores of Georgian Bay.

Through education, research, community stewardship and its technical advisory service, the Coastal Centre helps individuals, community groups and municipalities work with the coastal environment to minimize their impact.

The Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation is a registered non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the conservation of Lake Huron's natural shoreline environment. By supporting its efforts, you will help to ensure that we pass on a positive environmental legacy to our future generations.

 

As a non-profit charity, the Centre can't function without your support. Help us improve Lake Huron's environment for present and future generations.
