Fall Into Nature at Conservation Halton parks
Conservation Halton invites residents to Fall Into Nature, with a host of activities planned at its seven main parks over the next two weekends.
Outdoor lovers are welcome to visit one or all of the parks — including Crawford Lake, Hilton Falls, Kelso, Mountsberg, Rattlesnake Point, Mount Nemo and Robert Edmondson — to celebrate autumn.
With Halloween just around the corner, residents are invited to visit Mountsberg for the new Pumpkin Passport to Discovery and learn all about pumpkins during a self-guided tour of the park.
A variety of other CH activities run each day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and include:
• photography workshops at Mountsberg on October 12 (fall colours), 19 (barnyard creatures) and 20 (birds of prey).
• discovery of new Hide and Seek Trail at Crawford Lake with craving demonstrations on October 19 and 20.
• rock climbing at Rattlesnake Point
• presentations of First Nations culture at Crawford Lake with Chief Top Leaf from October 12 to 14 and First Nations dancers on October 19 and 20
• bird’s eye view of autumn colours via chairlift rides at Kelso
• horse-drawn wagon rides through the forest at Crawford Lake October 12-14
• Halton Forest Festival at Rattlesnake Point on October 19
A detailed schedule of events, with specific times and costs, is available at www.fallintonature.ca.
