Conservation Parks contest
Written by Patti Foley

The great outdoors – there’s nothing more Canadian than that. This year, as Canadians prepare to celebrate Canada 150, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) and Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) are launching the 150 Days of Giveaways with Conservation Parks contest. Up for grabs are 1,867 one-year ‘Family and Friends’ Conservation Parks memberships to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Beginning April 29, you can enter the contest for free by visiting during the contest period. All entries will be collected online and prizes will be awarded weekly throughout the summer. The contest closes Sept. 29, 2017.

Conservation Parks is a partnership between the two conservation authorities that offers a variety of park locations and natural areas for the public to visit. Conservation Parks are located across the GTA and Headwaters region where visitors can explore, rediscover nature and spend valuable time together creating new memories with family and friends.

CVC and TRCA began their Conservation Parks partnership in 2015 to create more opportunities for residents and visitors of the GTA and Headwaters region to experience and appreciate nature. Each conservation park offers something unique for visitors. The Conservation Parks membership grants general admission to all CVC and TRCA parks and offers special discounts on rentals, in-park experiences and merchandise. Park locations include:

· Albion Hills
· Heart Lake
· Belfountain
· Island Lake
· Boyd
· Ken Whillans
· Black Creek Pioneer Village
· Kortright Centre
· Bruce’s Mills
· Petticoat Creek
· Glen Haffy
· Terra Cotta

The Conservation Parks membership program supports the work of CVC and TRCA to help people understand, enjoy and look after the environment.
