Thanks to Nature
Take part in a new tradition

Thanks to Nature is an opportunity to thank Nature for what it provides all year round, during Thanksgiving. What used to be a celebration of the earth's bounty at our table is still the perfect time to show our appreciation to Mother Nature.

Whether you want to take a break from your hectic urban life, have an adventure or take care of your health, any reason is a good reason to reconnect with the natural world and call to mind the importance of protecting our wilderness spaces and all they do for us.

The Nature Connection Trail, led by our team of volunteers, invites you to be in full immersion in nature.  Through five playful stations, you will be invited to take the time to thank nature.

  • Hugging Tree : Hug a tree to thank nature for everything she provides all year round.
  • Wishing Tree : Make a wish for the future of the planet.
  • Vitamine N : Fill up your sense with a healthy dose of vitamin Nature. Nature is good for your physical and mental wellbeing!
  • Voluntary Slowdown Area : Speeding is obsolete. Take a serious challenge: slow down!
