Lakehead Region Conservation Authority

Thunder Bay’s proximity to the great outdoors has always been considered an advantage for residents and anyone who is visiting. That’s more important these days considering the skyrocketing price of gasoline.

The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority (LRCA) has eight Conservation Areas which provide a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities in natural settings and all are within an hour of Thunder Bay.

Many of the Authority’s Conservation Areas feature open air pavilions with interpretive displays, picnic tables and barbecue grills.

We invite you to Play In Our Backyard. Admission to our Conservation Areas is just $2/vehicle. That’s a great bargain in these days of high gas prices.

Directions, trail maps and other information about the Conservation Areas are available from the LRCA Office which is located at 130 Conservation Road in Thunder Bay or on the internet: www.lakeheadca.com.
