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.
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.
We promote awareness and respect for nature through year-round, hands-on outdoor nature education and park stewardship.
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.
