Dear fellow nature lover, 

We had such good news come our way that we had to send you this special edition Loon Call. Thank you for all you’ve done for nature this year and happy holidays!
 


You did it!

We are thrilled to announce today that thanks to members like you, our nature network groups and partner organizations, the Sydenham River Nature Reserve is a reality! Ontario Nature has now purchased a spectacular 193-acre property – forever protecting one of Ontario’s most biodiverse waterways. The reserve is open to visitors and Ontario Nature is already planning to create new trails for the public to explore. We would like to give a special thanks to all of our determined members who helped create our 25th nature reserve and to Lambton Wildlife and the Sydenham Field Naturalists who were instrumental in the fundraising, and now share the responsibility to steward the property with Ontario Nature.



This holiday, the magic of nature is in your hands

Nature’s magic in Ontario exists because of you. When you look with your heart you see the magic in everything from fall bird migration to bumble bees pollinating flowers and in nature’s secrets we’ve yet to uncover. The magic of nature in Ontario is real – and it’s yours to protect as an Ontario Nature member. Please consider making your special holiday gift this year to protect nature in Ontario and all its magic. Thank you!

 


 


You are our heroes

It has been a busy year. All the important work done and progress made for nature in Ontario has been thanks to your support. The creation of the Citizen Science Directory, connecting hundreds of youth with nature, fighting for our pollinators (and we still are!) and so many other wonderful things have been accomplished this year because of you. It is an honour to have your trust to care for the wild species and wild spaces you love. Thank you. You truly are the heart of Ontario Nature.
