LRCA Assisting Farmers in Erosion and Nutrient Control

The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority (LRCA) is looking for interested farmers and/or producers within the region who are interested in funding for fencing and cattle crossing type projects. This funding is available to farmers/producers located within  the Lakehead Region (from the USA border and northwards including Dorion). Projects can range from bridge crossings and other types of structures, to fencing projects. Access to pre-engineered designs will be granted and would be MNRF approved. I have attached the fact sheet from last year’s project at the Otter Creek Farm.

An example of a successful project completed last year can be accessed here.

Anyone experiencing erosion problems or those who would be interested in better fencing, buffer strips or crossings please feel free to contact Gene Kent, Special Projects & Environmental Education Outreach Coordinator for the LRCA at 807-344-5857 ext. 233 or
