This Winter, 2020, our Family Nature walks are generously sponsored by the High Park Western Beaches Fund.
Get outside and explore nature in High Park with your whole family! Grandparents, parents, teens, children and babies alike will love this chance to discover the natural wonders in High Park’s incredible savannahs, woodlands and wetlands. Walks are led by our amazing nature interpreters. Kindly note, Family Nature Walks take place on wooded trails that are not stroller or wheelchair accessible.
Please remember to dress for the winter weather! Wearing a good base-layer of clothing, such as merino wool, a synthetic material or a mixture of both during colder seasons goes a long way towards maintaining comfort. These materials wick moisture away from the body and keep you dry and toasty. Believe it or not, we can work up a sweat on our winter wanders which is often what cools us down if we're not wearing a wicking material against the skin. Next to a good base-layer, fleece, wool or a thicker, non-cotton middle-layer, followed by a good coat, mitts, a hat, scarf, and water or wind proof pants, and you'll be good to go!
Shoes or boots that are good for trail walking are recommended.
