Stories to Tell

Conservation Areas are full of adventure and are just waiting to be explored! There are so many great stories to tell about visits to these natural gems, and we have shared some of our experiences and the experiences of others with you on this page. We encourage you to browse through the stories below and then Step Into Nature with family and friends to create your own ‘story to tell’!

Dog walking is one of the many activities that Conservation Areas users enjoy. Dogs are welcomed at Conservation Areas, but for the safety of visitors and your pet, they must be kept on leash at all times, with the exception of designated off-leash areas. Also, please remember to dispose of all pet waste in garbage bins. Help to keep it safe and clean for everyone!

Plan an enjoyable experience with your pet

  1. Keep your dog on a leash and under control at all times.

  2. Stay on marked trails to minimize the impacts to our environment.

  3. There are natural risks to your pet from steep drops, encounters with wildlife and being in unfamiliar surroundings with new smells.

  4. Be aware that there are diseases which naturally affect our native wildlife and can pose a risk to dogs.

  5. Your dog may be friendly, but not all visitors like dogs and some may be afraid of them. Please be respectful of fellow visitors.
