Join NCC staff on a tour of the MacMillan Nature Reserve in Vaughan and learn about this hidden wild space and how it is being conserved and stewarded. We will also visit the historic buildings and farmland to discuss some of the concepts emerging about how best to manage these lands. An NCC-provided picnic lunch will follow.
