WHO WE ARE

The Carden Field Alvar is a highly vulnerable aquifer and a globally significant natural mosaic covering 17,000 hectares, spanning northern Simcoe County and western City of Kawartha Lakes. It is a diverse mix of grasslands, wetlands, rock barrens and forests with nationally and provincially significant habitats and Species at Risk. It is the "Land Between" and it is worthy of protection.

The Carden Field Naturalists is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to protecting the Carden Field Alvar.
