Multi-Use Activities Not at Risk in the Ganaraska Forest

With your input, new and expanded trail networks will be created in the Forest. The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) is NOT closing trails to any existing user groups in the Ganaraska Forest. Despite misinformation circulating online, the GRCA remains committed to providing multi-use, recreational trails for ALL to enjoy, including both motorized and non-motorized activities.

Notice of Public Open House: Trail Modelling & Development in the Ganaraska Forest

The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) owns and manages the 11,000-acre Ganaraska Forest. A recreational program is offered supporting multi-use activities on the property. The GRCA is using a Geographic Information System (GlS)-based method/model for determining new recreational trail locations, based on environmental factors, as well as user preferences for trail attributes. The GRCA will be hosting two public open houses seeking feedback on the environmental and trail user criteria that will be used by the GIS model to support new trail locations.

Calling All Nature Lovers!

The GRCA’s Nature Nuts March Break Camp is designed, planned and delivered by Ontario-certified Outdoor Education teaching staff. Campers aged 7 to 11 are invited to participate in a variety of hands-on activities, active games, group challenges, zany crafts and good-natured fun. Children learn how to survive in the great outdoors; design, construct and test structures, create messy science experiments, and so much more.
