A great way to explore the outdoors
South Nation Conservation (SNC) has re-opened its parks, trails, docks and boat launches for the season.
SNC’s network of 14 day-use conservation areas across its 4,384 square-kilometre jurisdiction are accessible free of charge and provide public access to the authority’s 12,000 acres of community land.
Whether it’s for fishing, bird watching, geocaching, paddling or hiking, all are welcomed and encouraged to get outdoors and step into nature at a conservation area.
“With well over 20 kilometres of trails to explore, nine docks and boat launches which provide river access, SNC’s Conservation Areas offer perfect opportunities for local adventures,” said John Mesman, SNC’s Communications Lead.
From now until Thanksgiving, SNC’s head office in Finch will remain open until 7 p.m. Thursdays to provide residents with extended-service options and opportunities to meet with SNC staff about summer projects and permit approvals.
Thursday evenings are also great opportunity for local residents to inquire about SNC’s programs and services, upcoming events, and available free meeting rooms at SNC’s head office in Finch.
“We’re looking forward to another busy and productive summer, sharing public natural spaces and delivering environmental services to our member municipalities and their residents,” added Mr. Mesman.
