Friends of Lemoine Point
The Friends of Lemoine Point is a local group of volunteers that helps to maintain and enhance the Lemoine Point Conservation Area, a magnificent forested waterfront conservation area located within the city of Kingston, Ontario.
We are a non-profit, charitable organization that actively undertakes various projects and programs to promote and protect Kingstonians' enjoyment of the natural environment at Lemoine Point.
Our specific goals:
Projects and ProgramsOur various activities are generally carried out in close cooperation with the CRCA and/or the Lemoine Point Advisory Committee, and depend very much on public support including volunteer labour, membership fees, and special financial donations.
They include various aspects of maintaining and regenerating the natural environment as well as other ways of enhancing Lemoine Point. Current activities include:
Heritage Forest Program
Native Plant Nursery
Invasive Species Control
Policy and Planning
We conduct periodic surveys of visitors to Lemoine Point to determine interests and usage, helpful in such policy and planning matters. Our 2001 survey estimated about 208,000 visits per year (not including organized events) as well as about 67,000 dog visits. Traffic counters in 2007 and 2008 indicated about 320,000 entries per year.
