Welcome to the Get Involved NPCA online engagement portal! We are thrilled to invite you to this space where you will learn more about our partnership with local public libraries and how you can get your hands on an NPCA NaturePlus Pass.



About the program:

The NPCA remains committed to ensuring equitable access to greenspace for peoples and communities across the watershed. We partnered with local municipal libraries to provide access to conservation areas by loaning out our NaturePlus passes. Currently, fees apply at various of these conservation areas and this great pass allows participants to visit natural hidden gems at no cost.

In early 2024 each participating location received twice the amount of passes to rent out. The total amount of passes available is 120!

Passes can be rented for one week and are available on a first-come, first-served basis at local library branches and facilities, often accompanied by nature backpacks complete with binoculars and guidebooks.

Since 2021, the NaturePlus Passes have been borrowed hundreds of times and we are honoured that visitors have chosen to step into nature with us, at an NPCA Conservation Area!
