    Description

Overview of rare

 

Founded in 2001, the rare Charitable Research Reserve is a non-profit organization that owns, and protects in perpetuity, a 913-acre land reserve along the Grand and Speed Rivers.

 

Our Key Objectives:

 

Among rare’s objectives are:

• To encourage, promote and foster an understanding and awareness of the Region’s natural resources, history and environment and their value in enhancing the public’s quality of life.

• To conduct research, seminars, interpretive activities, conferences and public forums about the flora, fauna, organic agricultural practices, hydrology and geology.

• To promote the advancement of education in the Region and at Ontario institutions of higher education.

 

On the edge of Cambridge, the property is located in NorthDumfriesTownship, part of Waterloo Region, which is one of the fastest growing urban areas in Canada. The property presents a unique opportunity to understand our environment – its role in our lives, our economies, and even our survival. It provides a rare account of natural and human histories, a source of unaltered genetic information as well as early agricultural practice. Being within the northern limit of the Carolinian forest zone of North America, rare is also within the biological zone with the greatest biodiversity in Canada.
