Our Special Spaces

Each year, Ontario Nature’s Youth Council organizes conservation volunteering events in communities across Ontario.

Since 2011, hundreds of people have joined Our Special Spaces events and contributed to conservation efforts in their communities. Past projects include pollinator habitat creation, tree planting, litter removal, hiking trail maintenance and shoreline cleanups.

In spring 2017, Ontario Nature Youth Council members hosted ten pollinator habitat creation events in communities across Ontario in partnership with local groups. We are grateful to our partners and the 289 volunteers who helped make these events successful. They planted more than 2,700 native wildflowers, shrubs and trees to benefit wild pollinators.
