The Grand River and its major tributaries—the Nith, Conestogo, Speed and Eramosa—were declared Canadian Heritage Rivers in 1994. It’s a rare designation that recognizes the outstanding features and excellent  recreational opportunities found throughout the watershed. And folks in these parts are pretty passionate about preservation and protection.
 

That starts with Friends of the Grand—a non-profit organization of members and volunteers committed to education, recreation and improving appreciation of the watershed’s natural environment. The group includes many local fly fishing guides who, along with all volunteers, help maintain garbage kiosks and Adopt a Road programs to keep litter under control. The River Watch program discourages poaching and educates anglers about special catch and release regulations. And the group’s fish stocking program has released over 300,000 brown trout below Shand Dam in the past few years, making the Grand River one of Canada’s top fly fishing destinations.
