The Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation aims are to promote awareness of the local environment and watershed with a view to:
- Protection of the regional drainage system and groundwater quality.
- Providing a sustainable environment and ecology
- Providing a base for unbiased public education.
- Providing an environmentally friendly design for economic growth and ecotourism.
The Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation’s mission is to help preserve the quality of air, water, and terrestrial ecosystems of the Almaguin area of the Magnetawan Watershed and help protect this unique natural heritage for generations to come.
The Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation’s role is one of stewardship. It is not a regulatory or enforcement agency. Its function is to make recommendations to decision makers and the general public on ways to protect the resources of the Magnetawan Watershed.
The Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation has a Board of Directors composed of a maximum of fourteen members, plus Associate Directors. These members, where ever possible, represent a good cross section of the watershed’s community. Representatives should come from varied communities of interest, such as municipal council, local business, lake associations, forestry industry, builders/developers, real estate agencies, tourism industry, and members of the general public.
The Kearney Environmental Foundation is an independent agency which advises and makes recommendations to decision making bodies concerning the protection and enhancement of the quality of the Magnetawan Watershed.
The Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation welcomes and will respond to requests for advice on actions affecting the watershed that are proposed by local, provincial or federal agencies, local businesses, or the general public.
Members will keep the public, agencies, organizations, and interests informed about the work of the Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation and bring these concerns to the Foundation.
The Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation provides advice and guidance to the general public on ways to protect and restore the Magnetawan Watershed. The Kearney Watershed Environmental Foundation will also keep the public informed on the health of the environment and the impact of various activities occurring throughout the watershed.
