Thames Talbot Land Trust (TTLT) protects and restores nature within Elgin, Middlesex, Oxford, and Perth counties and the City of London, in the current and traditional territories of Indigenous Peoples including Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg, Lenaapeewak, Attawandaron, and Wendat Peoples. We aim to work in the spirit and practice of reconciliation, and we are honoured to take part in sustaining and nurturing nature in this region.
With a focus on healthy habitats for wildlife, our work also contributes to human well-being and helps address climate change. TTLT safeguards land through purchase, donation or by special agreements, and cares for the land through conservation and restoration initiatives. TTLT also hosts events and programs aimed at nurturing people’s connection to nature to inspire wonder, promote well-being, and increase support for these protected areas.
Since 2000, TTLT has protected more than 826 hectares (2047 acres) of land across 23 sites and counting. These include wetlands, forests, meadows, agricultural lands and the homes of more than 50 species at risk. We actively engage in stewardship and restoration of lands in our care to ensure healthy habitats are created and continue to thrive.
Our communities are greener and more vibrant through engagement and outreach programs to connect people with nature. We host numerous public events, workshops and youth programming annually.
