Upcoming Events


Join us! The Celebrating Natural Connections events commemorate the continued efforts of frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic and celebrate the natural spaces that are so important for our physical and mental health.


The Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) is joining with local community organizations and municipalities to host a series of free “Celebrating Natural Connections” public events in natural spaces across the Upper Thames River watershed. The events include 10 public hikes and two virtual hikes, with activities, displays, and presentations. Local artists and municipalities are involved, as well as hiking, naturalist, and angler clubs.

These free events are an opportunity to explore the natural spaces that became so important for our communities’ physical and mental health during the pandemic. Everyone is welcome! The UTRCA would especially like to invite all those community members that have been instrumental in helping others through the pandemic. A commemorative item will be installed at many of the event locations to recognize the contributions of local front line workers.
