About Crowe Valley Conservation Authority

Painted TurtleSince 1958, the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority (CVCA) has worked in partnership with its ten member municipalities and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF).

With its head office in Marmora, Ontario, the CVCA operates 13 dams along the Crowe River and its tributaries. The CVCA also maintains a stream flow forecasting center to help reduce the risk of flooding.

Managing over 2000 sq/km of territory, the Crowe Valley Conservation Authority maintains 1300 acres of conservation land divided between 4 main conservation areas. If you love the outdoors you can enjoy many outdoor activities at one of our beautiful and pristine Conservation Areas.

The Crowe Valley Conservation Authority has something for everyone!
