This event is free for Grand River Parks Members and those who have paid the park admission fee. Preregistration is not required.
Get your dose of “Vitamin N” (nature of course!) and explore Shade's Mill Conservation Area with your whole family. Grandparents, parents, teens and children alike are invited to join our amazing nature guides to enjoy some forest time. This is a great chance to get some exercise, enjoy the crisp winter air and discover how to connect with nature. Our nature guide will help you look for signs and tracks of animals, sounds of birds and other natural wonders. Winter is not a reason to stay inside so join us on the walk. We will be hitting the trails regardless of the weather. The forest walk is approximately 2 KM and will take about 60 minutes. At the end of the trail, you can spend some time around the campfire to toast marshmallows and warm up with hot chocolate. Presented by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada.
