Community involvement defines Ontario Nature’s character and approach. With our member groups and individual members, Ontario Nature has made a significant impact on conservation issues in communities across Ontario and we continue to build a natural legacy for future generations.

The Ontario Nature Conservation Awards recognize excellence by honouring individuals, groups, government agencies and corporations for protecting nature in Ontario.
