The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is a non-governmental, not for profit, private charitable organization that protects Canada’s important natural landscapes and the species they sustain. NCC manages the Creemore Nature Reserve to promote native biodiversity and maintains 5.5 km of trails for public use. Known locally as “The Mingay,” after the family who originally owned and donated the land, the Creemore Nature Preserve is an important part of the community. Rich in human history, this area was long inhabited by both Indigenous peoples and more recent settlers.

NCC started working on the property in 1997, but the trails through the forest were already well-known to local nature-lovers. These designated trails travel over moderately hilly terrain through forest, wetlands and alongside a creek. Hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and respectful wildlife watching on designated trails are permitted. Pets must always remain on leash and pet waste must be packed out. For all other uses, more information, or to make donations to help care for these trails and properties, please contact NCC at ontario@natureconservancy.ca or call 1-877-231-3552.
