ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERS THAT LAST FOREVER

Nature is an undeniable force which can bring so much happiness to your life. Ontario Parks works to preserve the natural world so generations to come can experience the magic of our provincial parks.

Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the park you love to explore. Hear the whistling of the trees and the calling of the animals. The laughter of friends and family and the crashing of the waves. You find a sense of hope, excitement, anticipation and peacefulness as you look out onto the landscape.

By leaving a legacy to Ontario Parks, you’ll help the generations that follow experience the same sense of wonder. You’ll also be recognizing the importance of being an environmental steward, and for this we thank you.

Memories made at Ontario Parks made you who you are today. Your love of parks, respect for nature, and care for our environment can be passed down for generations to come.

We know that your family comes first. After you’ve planned for them, please consider the power your legacy could have left to protect our parks.
