Pride in Nature

Show your Pride Outside – Join us as we celebrate Pride Month at Conservation Halton Parks!

We’re celebrating Pride month with the return of Pride in Nature at our parks. First launched as a one-day experience in 2021, Pride in Nature now includes a series of activities and events to celebrate 2SLGBTQ+ communities and build support for a more inclusive and equitable society. With family-friendly programs and outdoor activities for all ages, this year’s programming roster offers something for everyone throughout the month of June.
