Nature Day

Nature Day Passport and Activity Guide

East Gwillimbury and Lake Simcoe Region Authority Nature Day 2020!

We teamed up with our friends in East Gwillimbury and Lake Simcoe Region Authority to provide children in their annual Nature Day participation with backpacks. Each was filled with goodies to include TS Activity Booklets, instruction postcards for a fun activity where we teamed up with PlantSnap, an interactive free app kids can easily use to identify plants and flowers on their trail adventure, rocks for personalizing, branded water bottles, masks and more goodies from our friends at Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority.

Roughin’ it for a Reason

Camp out in your backyard to support new nature centre at Scanlon Creek

Tiny Seedlings would like to take a moment to bring this great fund raising event to your attention.

Roughin’ it for a Reason is a fundraiser participants will camp out to raise awareness and funds for the new nature centre.

Roughin’ it for a Reason started last year when staff of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) camped out to raise money for the nature centre.

Due to Covid-19, this year the event will be virtual rather than at at Scanlon Creek, with participants camping out in their own backyards. The event will be hosted by Frankie “Flowers” Ferragine online while camping in his own backyard.

Anyone wishing to participate in Roughin’ it for a Reason can participate on their own or with a team. People are also able to donate online if they want to support the cause, but don’t want to camp.

Event Details

  • Date: September 24, 2020
  • Time: 6:00pm – the next morning!
  • What: Camping
  • Where: In your own backyard or balcony (or anywhere really!)
  • Why: To get back to nature and raise funds to build the new Nature Centre

Those wishing to register for Roughin’ it for a Reason or to donate can visit here.
