WINTER WEATHER NOTICE

Conservation area visitors are reminded to take precaution when attending natural areas and trails, especially during the fall/winter season when inclement weather and conditions may arise. In the event of inclement weather, NPCA conservation areas remain open, but activities and services may be limited and facilities such as the Centre for Conservation at Ball’s Falls may be closed. Please be mindful of NPCA staff who work to ensure primary parking areas are cleared and plowed when visiting, and note that all trails are natural, and not maintained for winter recreation. Please check NPCA conservation area pages on Facebook for closure postings, as these are updated regularly.
