Since 1961, Ontario Nature has been protecting significant natural areas within its nature reserve system. With 24 properties totalling 2,788 hectares (6,890 acres), the system preserves some of the province's best remaining examples of imperiled and vulnerable habitats.

Many rare and endangered species are protected by Ontario Nature's nature reserve system including the blue racer snake, the ramshead lady-slipper and the red-headed woodpecker.

The Ontario Nature reserves are open to visitors. For more information about visiting the reserves, please read our Permitted Activities Policy (PDF: 46k) or contact the Ontario Nature office. Click here for some great winter activities on a few of the nature reserves.
