WELCOME TO HURONIA WOODLAND OWNER'S ASSOCIATION
The Huronia Woodland Owners Association (HWOA) is the Simcoe County chapter of the Ontario Woodlot Association (OWA). HWOA was formed in 1971 by an enthusiastic group of landowners and land interest groups who wanted a forum for interested people to promote wise use of forest resources on private land. After more than 44 years of service to our membership our main purpose has not changed. We have a common interest in forestry and the wise long term use of the forest resources including as wildlife habitat, for recreation, and forest products. We encourage anyone interested in our forests to join our membership. HWOA membership is included with your OWA membership.
Great events require great volunteers! Please consider volunteering your time as a board director or to help with one of our yearly events (Field Day, White Pine Award, Scholarship selection).
The Huronia Chapter has offered to host the Spring 2022 Ontario Woodlot Association annual conference. This timing coincides with the 100th anniversary of Simcoe County Forests! We're excited to have this opportunity to showcase our area. A conference organizing committee is being established. Please contact one of our directors in order to volunteer on this committee.
At our 2019 White Pine Award meeting, Cathy Walton spoke about her new book entitled Vanishing Barns.
