Celebrate Family Day in the great outdoors this year with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). Take a trip to Island Lake or Terra Cotta Conservation Areas on February 19 and enjoy a day of family fun.

Island Lake Conservation Area offers a full lineup of activities. Try something new together like kicksledding or riding a fat tire bike. Bring your skates and spend time on the rink and skating trail, or borrow a pair of snowshoes and hit the trails. Learn to ice fish with free demonstrations and tips for kids. Family Day is the last day of our annual ice fishing derby. Rods and huts are available.

Terra Cotta Conservation Area also has Family Day activities. Enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on groomed trails. Visitors will receive 10 per cent off rentals throughout the day. Skating is also available on the rink and skating trail.

Both locations offer giant games, campfires and s’mores. Regular park admission fees apply. Park members enter for FREE! Dress for the weather and enjoy a full day of winter activities. Family Day activities are weather dependent. For parks conditions updates visit www.cvc.ca

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is a local conservation authority established by the Ontario government in 1954 to protect, restore and enhance the natural environment of the Credit River watershed. That watershed is the area of land defined by where all rainfall, snowmelt and runoff drains into lands and waters flowing into the Credit River. CVC creates connections between people and nature, knowledge and action. It inspires a deep appreciation for the role of nature in keeping people connected, healthy and happy. CVC is a member of Conservation Ontario.
