The Friends of Simcoe Forests Inc. is a Non-Profit organization consisting of concerned citizens within the region of Simcoe County, Ontario.


Our long term goal is to inform and unite all persons interested in the conservation of our County’s forests.  We encourage all local residents, visitors and friends of our environment to realize that they have the ability to enjoy the natural flora and fauna of the region, as well as the natural beauties of the forests within Simcoe County. As a group we encourage beautification, preservation, and extension of parks and Green Belts. 

Through our mutual love and concern for the county’s forests, we strive to make available all known statistical, scientific, horticultural and botanical information that positively impacts the future of our forests.

It is our goal to promote the protection and appreciation of the environment and lands which are there for all of us and future generations to use and enjoy.

Current Campaign:

We oppose the site proposed and selected by Simcoe County for construction of an Materials Management Facility and Organics Processing Facility. The selected site is located in the agriculturally zoned 207 acre Freele Forest Tract.  This tract is recognized as Site C136, located at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Rd W. by the County’s consultant.  

Contact us about how you can help.

The friends of Simcoe Forests Inc. relies solely on the money raised at fund raising events and donations by you.  Please donate today.


The Friends of Simcoe Forests received the John Graves Simcoe Medal of Excellence for our work in the community June 2017.
