Who is SNO? We are a collaborative of non-government and government stewardship organizations.
What does SNO do? We work together to increase the capacity of stewardship agencies to contribute to biodiversity conservation and environmental health.
Why is stewardship important? Ontarians place huge demands on the Province’s biological resources, with serious consequences not only for biodiversity but also for environmental health, quality of life and economic prosperity. Most of the land in southern Ontario is in private ownership, so stewardship is the single most effective mechanism we have to ensure the future health of our communities and enable long-term sustainable use of our lands and waters. In order to accomplish this, we need to engage the support and active participation of private landowners, communities, industry and businesses.
