Some of our most popular activities are Hiking Days. We have a dedicated group of volunteers who guide hikes throughout the year to local natural attractions. Some recent destinations have been Nickie’s Trail, Archie’s Rock, High Falls and Bald Rock. The galleries below show some highlights of our recent hikes.

2022 Winter Hiking Day at Hersey Lake Conservation Area

Based on feedback received last fall, this Winter Hiking Day offered more of the educational hikes that people asked for. We hosted a Birdwatching Hike, Forest Education on Snowshoes, Forest Therapy Walk, Natural History Hike, and Talking with Trees Hike. We were also pleased to welcome back the Timmins Porcupine Search and Rescue team who shared their winter survival knowledge with participants.
