Workshops & Events

Here you can find all of our upcoming nature events, workshops, and webinars on and near the Oak Ridges Moraine. You won’t want to miss them!

 WELCOME BACK!

Your health and safety is important to us. The Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust has changed how we are delivering our events based on social distancing guidelines, mask recommendations and suggested cleaning practices. While we have taken steps to prevent the spread, we would like to also emphasize the importance of your actions in protecting yourself, loved ones, and those most vulnerable in our community. We thank you for your ongoing support and safe participation.

We ask each participant to review the ORMLT COVID-19 Event Protocol here.

If you still have questions about how we are adapting to the COVID-19 situation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
