Current Fundraising Goal: Springwater Conservation Area Poplar Hill Playground
The Catfish Creek Conservation Authority (CCCA) is a non-profit organization that manages several Conservation Areas within it’s watershed.

Every donation by individuals, businesses, and organizations is very much appreciated and will be recognized appropriately.

Past Fundraising Goal: Springwater Conservation Area Visitor Centre
Out with the old and in with the new! The first ever Gatehouse at the Springwater Conservation Area was built in 1977 to replace a slim guard booth. The current Main Gatehouse / Store was built in 1986. Unfortunately that building has reached the end of it’s life. With close to 11,000 annual visitors the Springwater Conservation Area needs to move forward with a more user friendly Entrance and new and improved Visitor Centre.
The CCCA wishes to thank all of the donors that helped make the new building possible. It is now open!
