Camping / Outdoor Recreation

Whether you’re backcountry camping, geocaching in a suburban park or hiking through a national park, these tips can help keep you, your family and the wildlife safe!

Eighty-nine percent of Canadian adults participate in at least one of 30 common nature-based activities according to the 2012 Canadian Nature Survey. That means a lot of people in natural areas – be it urban green spaces, remote wilderness and everything in between. These general tips can help keep people, pets and wildlife safe. Always check for local information on species in the area, bylaws, restrictions, etc., when visiting a new natural area. No matter what activities you’re participating in, remember to take nothing and leave nothing.
