Does Conservation Halton ever cancel the program?
Sometimes cancellations occur due to extreme weather or due to changes in public health protocols. We will email guests as soon as possible and process refunds if they will be impacted by a closure. We will also keep our social media platforms updated. Follow Conservation Halton on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Parking is included in your reservation fee. Parking is located in the main parking lot outside of the Discovery Centre.
Please check in with a Visitor Services Representative inside the Gift Shop of the Discovery Centre upon arrival.
Program Start Time
Please arrive at the time indicated on your eticket to avoid disappointment. We will not be able to accommodate late arrivals on the wagon ride.
Can We See the Raptors or Barn Animals During My Visit?
The Raptor Center outdoor enclosures are open daily from 9am to 4pm. For the health of the birds the enclosures are closed from 4pm onwards.
The barn will be open during the Christmas Town program for guests to greet the animals.
Much of the Christmas Town program takes place outside. Please dress appropriately for the weather, including a winter coat, snow pants, a hat, mittens or gloves, and winter boots, or rain gear if required.
For the safety of the horses, dogs are not allowed at Christmas Town.
Strollers & Wheelchairs
The trails at Mountsberg are stroller friendly. The trail is hard packed, but it is uneven in some sections and some buildings have a lip that may pose a challenge for some users. Winter weather may also impact trail conditions. Please contact us for more information about accessibility – we are happy to help – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Strollers and wheelchairs cannot be accommodated on the wagon ride. However, wheelchairs and strollers can be walked out to Christmas Town by staff, if required.
