NCC has prepared the following message about the closure:
In light of the current situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) has made the decision to close our properties until further notice in order to best follow the provincial and municipal public health advisories. As our properties are designated as ‘workplaces’ under provincial law, the closure of our properties is mandated by the provincial government closure of non-essential businesses. This includes NCC’s Gillies Grove property in the Town of Arnprior and Township of McNab/Braeside.
While we understand the importance of nature to our health and well-being, especially in stressful times, we ask you to please postpone your trips to Gillies Grove until further notice. Please stay home, and enjoy nature virtually: www.natureconservancy.ca/trekker. Together, we can do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
For public inquiries regarding NCC’s conservation sites, please call: 1-877-231-3552.
