Foster a Forest!
Please help us protect the unique beauty and conserve the ecological wonders of King Mountain and Robertson Cliffs by “fostering” an acre for yourself or someone you love. You can select a specific acre or acres from our virtual map or have one or more assigned to you. Acres are priced in four categories with costs being proportional to perceived ecological, aesthetic or recreational value of the fostered acre.
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of individuals, recreational clubs, and businesses, we have successfully maximized the matching funds offered by the Echo Foundation! Since November 2015 we have raised a total of $120,000 through our Foster a Forest Campaign ($70,000 in donations + $50,000 matching funds). We are well on our way to the ultimate goal of becoming debt free once and for all! To be part of this huge conservation success, please consider making a donation today! Click here to find out more

Norm’s Cabin a Great Success
We are happy to announce the funding received from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) via their Infrastructure and Community Development Program, which was used in combination with our funding from FedDev Ontario and our private donors completed the rehabilitation of Norm’s Cabin! The cabin was finalized in the summer of 2015 and in October of that year it opened it’s doors to taking reservations from any who which to experience and enjoy! Additionally we are excited about the progress of the build and having a closed-in structure this ski season. This could not have been accomplished without the help of our amazing building crew and various volunteers, including the Sault College Parks Students.
2012 Resource Stewardship Award Recipient
The AHC is thrilled to announce that we were selected by Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources’ District Leadership Team to receive the 2012 Resource Stewardship Award. Since 1996, individuals and groups have been annually recognized by each OMNR district for excellence in protecting and enhancing our natural resources. The program has traditionally sought out members of the public who volunteered their time and significantly made a difference on the landscape. This honour encourages and motivates us to continue advancing our goals in conservation, scientific research, environmental education, and silent sport recreation. We acknowledge that, without the help of our partners, donors, funding agencies, members, and volunteers, our work would not be possible. A heartfelt THANK YOU goes to each and every one of our supporters! We are thankful for the ongoing privilege of being in charge of stewarding this spectacular part of Algoma!
We are thrilled to announce funding received through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund for the rehabilitation of Norm’s Cabin as an ecotourism destination.
