Birding, Wildflowers, live reptiles, mushroom hikes, wild edibles, guided hike with a field naturalist or even a nature paddle; we offer a variety of activities throughout the year. Our Nature Quests often take place on our own Nature Reserves, so it's also the occasion to see what we're working for at the Muskoka Conservancy!
