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 50 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.

Attention Private Forest Landowners!
Huronia Forest Co-operative
  • Do you have unmanaged conifer plantations or hardwood lots?

  • Would you like to improve your forest's health by increasing biodiversity, enhancing wildlife habitat and promoting carbon storage?

  • Are you have issues with invasive species like Dog Strangling Vine, Emerald Ash Borer or European Buckthorn?

If you answered Yes to any of these questions, you may be interested in joining the Huronia Community Forest Owners' Co-operative.

Volunteer Opportunities

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).

We have agreed to host the OWA provincial conference in April 2024. A small organizing committee has been formed, but could use a few more hands. If you'd like to help, please contact Doug Frost at doug@forksinthetrail.com
