TRCA’s properties offer unique opportunities to explore how our ancestors’ connection with the natural world shaped their lives and communities.
The history of the Toronto region is, in many ways, defined by the relationship between its early residents and the lands and waters that constituted the lifeblood of their settlements.
Today, Toronto and Region Conservation maintains a number of locations where visitors can learn how our natural and cultural heritages intertwine:
- Discover the life and legacy of Ontario conservation pioneer Dr. Francis H. Kortright at the Kortright Centre for Conservation.
- Step 150 years into the past, and explore the painstakingly restored heritage buildings at Black Creek Pioneer Village.
- Check out the restored water-powered mill at Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area.
See our Parks section for seasonal hours of operation.
