Springwater Conservation Area
Springwater Conservation Area will be offering Family Day snowshoeing, weather permitting, on Monday, February 18th, from 12 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Catfish Creek Conservation Authority welcomes friends and family to try out snowshoeing, one of the oldest forms of winter travel! Staff will be on hand to teach you all you will need to know to enjoy an afternoon of fun at Springwater CA. Learn about the history of snowshoeing, the different styles, and most of all enjoy a quick outdoor lesson. Wear low or no healed winter boots and dress for the weather!
This event is weather permitting, therefore when conditions are suitable – a base of at least 10 cm (4 inches) of snow and no ice, the event will continue. Please follow our social media sites (listed at the bottom) for day-of updates.
The staff of the Catfish Creek Conservation Authority understands the importance of spending a day with loved ones, especially in nature. Therefore, when you arrive at Springwater Conservation Area, admission and rental fees will be waived, as part of the Active Naturally Program here at Catfish Creek CA.
Staff will request to hold your driver’s license as a deposit on the snowshoes until they are returned. All snowshoes must be returned to the Sugar Shanty by 4:30 p.m. and cannot leave the park. We have many different sizes of snowshoes that range in size for weights from 50 lbs., through to adult sizes of 260 lbs. There is a limited number available so come early to avoid disappointment. If you have your own snowshoes, you’re more than welcome to bring them and come enjoy an afternoon of fun with us! There is no cross-country ski rental on site.
Springwater Conservation Area is located at 8079 Springwater Road, Aylmer, Ontario. Meet CCCA staff in the Sugar Shanty.
Dogs are more than welcomed but must be leashed at all times as under the Conservation Authorities Act R. R. O. 1990, Regulation 100, Section 10.
