Who We Are
Thames Talbot Land Trust (TTLT) is a non-profit, charitable organization that actively works to protect, conserve, and restore nature within Elgin, Middlesex, Oxford and Perth counties. We are a group of committed and passionate staff, Board members, volunteers, and donors working towards a vision of creating a network of permanently protected areas that are rich in biodiversity, sustain life and nourish a sense of wonder and inspiration for all people. We have been making a lasting impact on our local landscapes since 2000.
We currently protect more than 1900 acres of land (and counting), which is home to at least 50 Species at Risk.
What We Do
Protect Lands, Habitat, and Natural Heritage
With the help of our supporters, we have created a growing network of nature reserves, protecting and conserving our natural heritage into the future.
We create healthy habitats for all species, including some of Canada's rarest, by planting native plants, managing alien invasive species, constructing wetland and meadow habitats, and removing litter. Through inventory, mapping, and monitoring we support our native plants and wildlife and give them the chance to thrive, not just survive.
Nurturing a Love for Nature
We love sharing our love of nature. We offer a variety of events and programs to help you connect with the land and inspire curiosity for the world around us. From guided nature hikes to skill-building workshops, we've got something for everyone!
