Support the High Park Nature Centre

Your support helps the High Park Nature Centre deliver engaging nature experiences to more than 14,000 participants from across the Greater Toronto Area each year.


As a charitable organization, the High Park Nature Centre relies on donations from people like you! Your donation will help us provide environmental programing to students, families, and the greater community. Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $15 and up.

Capital Campaign

We’ve launched a capital campaign, A Home in High Park, in partnership with the City of Toronto – so that you, your family and friends and future generations will always feel welcome and at home in High Park.

Happy Camper Fund

At the High Park Nature Centre, we want all kids to experience the joy that time in nature can bring and grow up with a connection to the natural world.

Nature Centre Wishlist

If you are able to donate any of the items, please give us a call at 416-392-1748 or email us at to arrange a time for drop-off.

Digital Cameras

We often practice nature photography with the youth in our nature clubs. If a child doesn’t have a camera, we lend one of ours.

Large Shovels for Planting Trees

Useful for nature-helping tree-huggers of all ages.

Binoculars and Butterfly Nets

For bird watching and insect catching with students, Nature Club participants, and adults in our workshops.

Winter Outerwear

To be leant to students who need it when the winter winds blow coldest. Coats, snowpants, boots, and mittens are in good condition welcomed

Raincoats and Boots

Keep a kid dry if they forgot their rain gear at home. We take raincoats, rain boots and ponchos. We don’t use umbrellas.


We use tons of lard and shortening to make pine cone bird feeders in the late fall and winter.

Nature Field Guides

Donated field guides must be appropriate for our geographic area (ie. Eastern North American, Canadian, Ontarian or even Toronto)


Useful for nature crafts!
