The High Park Nature Centre is a charitable organization that was established in 1999. Their mission is to promote awareness and respect for nature through year-round, hands-on outdoor nature education and park stewardship. Nature Centre programs inspire a sense of wonder, knowledge and respect for High Park’s natural systems; restore human connections to local plants and animals; and engage visitors in ecological restoration activities to ensure a sustainable future for High Park for generations to come.

The High Park Nature Centre serves a diverse audience of over 14,000 people annually from across the Greater Toronto Area, including children, adults, seniors, families, elementary and secondary school students and teachers, ESL schools, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts, community centres and recreational programs. Through the Nature Centre’s programs, over 80,000 participants of all ages have been able to “give back” to High Park through park stewardship activities like planting native grasses, wildflowers and sedges or removing invasive plant species.

The funds raised will go towards supporting the Nature Centres new virtual stream of programming which is reaching a broader audience and meeting participants where they are and with the nature they have accessible. With $2,000 in funds the Nature Centre will be able to run 10 virtual events with nature based themes.

Tax receipts are issued for donations of $15 or more.
