Ontario Nature is excited to be hosting our 87th Annual Gathering on the shores of beautiful Prince Edward County.

In addition to exploring these local ecological treasures the weekend will also feature:

  • Inspiring speakers;
  • Hands-on, expert-led nature workshops;
  • Conservation Awards to recognize achievements of conservation heroes; and
  • Guided field trips to surrounding natural areas.
