Hello ,

As summer comes to an end, our staff is looking forward to safely gathering with members and supporters like you at our nature reserves. We have a lot planned this month with trail opening celebrations, habitat restoration projects, and our Youth Summit for Mother Earth. Read on to see what we have coming up and how you can get involved!

The Future for Nature: How You Can Help Secure Ontario’s Wild Species and Wild Spaces, Forever

Join Ontario Nature's executive director, Caroline Schultz, and David Love, birder and philanthropy expert, for a conservation update and conversation about how you can make a personal impact on nature in Ontario forever. We will share the personal stories of other Ontario Nature supporters just like you who have plans to continue their support after they are gone, all while still looking after their loved ones. We will also hear from a nature-loving financial planner, Ryan Fraser, about what you need to know about aligning your environmental values into your own planning--and you’ll have a chance to ask questions of your own.

Designating More Provincially Significant Wetlands 

The generous support of an Ontario Nature donor has allowed us to commission several wetland evaluations, with the goal of designating them as provincially significant by the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry. The latest addition to Ontario’s Provincially Significant Wetlands is the 640-hectare South Milburn Wetland Complex in Haliburton County. This wetland is home to species such as the whip-poor-will, eastern hog-nosed snake and Blanding’s turtle.

There’s Still Time to Register for the Youth Summit!

Do you know an environmentally conscious youth between 14 and 20 years of age? On September 25th and 26th members of Ontario Nature’s Youth Council and the Youth Circle for Mother Earth will facilitate a series of cross-cultural workshops and activities where youth gather online and outdoors to learn from conservation leaders, Indigenous Elders and one another. Workshops on food sovereignty, traditional Indigenous medicine, story sharing circles, and outdoor challenges are just a few of the offerings. For more information and to register, please contact Christine Ambre, Conservation and Education Coordinator, at
