Family Fun with Little Ones

Boasting one of the best cliff-edge ecosystems in the province, Mount Nemo also offers jaw-dropping views. On a clear day it’s easy to spot the CN Tower. The park’s trails, which run along the Bruce Trail, offer interesting sites like thousand-year-old crevice caves, ancient cedars and wild turkey vultures gliding across the sky.
While in the Halton area, kids and kids-at-heart will enjoy a visit to Mountsberg Conservation Area’s Raptor Centre. The Centre is currently home to 15 different species of native birds of prey, including eagles, hawks, owls, vultures and falcons. Birds of Prey shows are held daily in the summer and on weekends and holidays the rest of the year. For an additional fee, private 45-minute Raptor Encounters can be arranged. Read a blogger's account of his experience at Mountsberg's Raptor Centre.

If you're in the Brant area, consider a trip to Apps' Mill Nature Centre. The centre’s naturalists host great family programming with an environmental, outdoor focus, including Owl Prowls, Frog Frolics and Bug Hunts.
