dc.descriptionThe Metropolitan Toronto and Region Conservation Authority was created in February of 1957. This came from a merger of 4 watershed authorities in the 950 square mile region extending from Lake Ontario to a line just south of Orangeville and Whitby, east from Brampton to Ajax and from Mono Mills to Dagmar. The Authority took in the watersheds of the Humber, Etobicoke-Mimico, the Don and the Rouge-Duffin Creek, Highland Creek-Petticoat Creek. It is one of 36 conservation authorities in Ontario. The Authority is concerned with the establishment of conservation areas, reclamation of flood plains and wasteland, historical sites, land use, reforestation, water control and the general conservation of wildlife, soil, water and forest areas. It operates conservation areas which are open to the public for recreational use. It also operates Black Creek Pioneer Village and it operates 5 dams for flood control.en_US
