Community involvement is a major thrust of the Rainy Lake Conservancy. The Conservancy participates in and supports local activities.
 
Chamber of Commerce Home and Leisure Show
The Rainy Lake Conservancy is a member of the Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce, hosting a booth in its annual Home and Leisure Show in Fort Frances. Through this valuable contact, volunteers are able to educate residents on shoreline stewardship and responsible use of the lakes and forests in the watershed. A number of people have expressed interest in land protection options for their properties after talking with Conservancy members at the show.

Rainy River Field Naturalists
The RLC partners with the field naturalists to help maintain the Cranberry Peatlands Interpretive Trail, (located in the Township of Alberton), and to design, print, and distribute pamphlets about the trail.
 
Fort Frances Museum
The Rainy Lake Conservancy works closely with the Fort Frances Museum. During Fort Frances' centennial year, for example, the museum featured a Rainy Lake Conservancy exhibit detailing the history of conservation in the area. The Rainy Lake Conservancy contributes to museum fund-raising efforts, and individual members donate art and photography for auctions.
 
Rainy Lake Fisheries Charity Trust
When discussions began in Fort Frances to create a fisheries trust, the Rainy Lake Conservancy offered support for this emerging group's commitment to sound, scientific research aimed at enhancing the long-term health of the Rainy Lake fishery. The Rainy Lake Fisheries Charity Trust was established as a charitable non-profit trust in 2005, assisted by Rainy Lake Conservancy start-up funds. A member of the Conservancy presently serves on the board of directors.
 
RLC Annual General Meeting
The public is invited to attend this meeting where guest speakers address various subjects related to the environment and life on the lake.
