Explore nature and imagine the possibilities of future ecological restoration.

Rain or shine, join our leaders for guided tours to this special place, as it is now and as it could be in the future. Dip the nets with Ontario Streams and hear what they envision for the flowing waters found here. Explore the trails and marshes with Raresites, who will share their urban ecology expertise. And hear from Yorklands Green Hub, who are working to put it all together as an exciting sustainable environment centre for the region.

Meet inside the main gate at the Guelph Correctional Centre lands, 785 York Rd. Park on nearby streets, take transit, bike or walk.

Guided one-hour walks along the waterways of the Guelph Correctional Centre will start at 10 am and 1pm.

Is this event accessible? Half of the walk will be on the paved driveway but some will be on a path through a grassy field path that is less smooth.
