This 440 acre conservation area has so much to offer for people of all ages, from well-maintained trails for hiking, cycling, and cross-country skiing, to a miniature birdhouse city reminiscent of a fairytale. Macaulay Mountain Conservation Area is a beautiful park located just outside of Picton, Ontario. The scenery here is simply stunning, particularly in the autumn when the colours of the maple and sumac turn to brilliant reds and yellows. A favourite destination for cyclist and hiking enthusiasts, there are over 11 km of trails to discover. The trails vary from easy, lowland trails to rugged treks through the escarpment. A series of gravel paths are also available for a relaxing stroll under the dense canopy of trees along with a small pond swimming and fishing.

Water quality problems impact drinking water in First Nations across Canada, with Drinking Water Advisories in effect in nearly 100 different communities. In our very own Vancouver, dismal water quality in False Creek made national headlines last summer, with E.coli counts through the roof. Despite our pride in Canada’s heritage of abundant natural beauty, access to swimmable, drinkable, fishable water is a problem we all face.
