CAMPBELLVILLE – Mountsberg Conservation Area is holding Tales by a Winter Fire on Family Day Weekend (February 16 to 18) with activities and interests for the whole family. The event offers horse drawn sleigh rides ending with tasty hot chocolate and marshmallows. Weather permitting there will also be tobogganing on our gentle slopes for the kids and young at heart.

During Tales by a Winter Fire you can watch Birds of Prey presentations in the Raptor Centre, while visits to see the bison feed and our Percheron horses will delight the animal lovers in your group. There are kilometres of wooded trails for those wishing a quiet retreat into nature. Our puppets will entertain several times in the Visitor’s Centre for the whimsical, too.

If you are under 12, or wish you were, we have activities to cross off your list of “50 Things To Do Before You Are 12”, or just chill out to stories of long ago by a crackling fire. Join us for activities for all ages, Family Day weekend at Mountsberg, your window into winter family fun.

Although some activities are snow dependent, our winter celebration will take place regardless of the weather, so come join in the fun! Regular park admission applies for Tales by a Winter Fire, and the festivities are free for children ages 4 years and under. Conservation Halton Annual Members only need to show their pass for admission.
