The Temagami area has 16 provincial parks and 26 conservation reserves, with the Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater wilderness-class park as the centrepiece. However, only 15% of the Temagami area is protected within either a provincial park or a conservation reserve.

FOT advocates for:

  • Expanding Ontario Parks backcountry maintenance programs
  • Reducing motorized access in Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater Park
  • Keeping new industrial uses out of protected areas
  • Increasing the size of Temagami's protected areas
  • Adding the Wolf Lake Forest Reserve to the Chiniguchi Waterway Provincial Park
