It All Comes Naturally

COVID-19 Response

The GRCA has closed all conservation areas for an undetermined amount of time as per provincial COVID-19 responses. As of May 8, parks and conservation areas may open after May 31. However, there may still be further delays due to the pandemic.

As the days and weeks pass by, updates will be posted on our Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as Please check weekly.

Please keep safe (and isolated). We are looking forward to getting on the water for some fun and learning.

Be well!
