FINCH — As of this past Victoria Day weekend, South Nation Conservation (SNC) re-opened it’s parks and docks for day-use!

SNC’s network of 14 Conservation Areas are available free of charge to residents, providing countless recreational opportunities to discover wildlife and their habitat in Eastern Ontario.

Due to high water levels, Jessup’s Falls Conservation Area will remain closed for the next few weeks.

Beginning May 25 until Thanksgiving, SNC’s administration office in Finch will stay open on Thursday evenings until 7 p.m. to provide clients seeking permits and approvals with an extended-service option.

“The extended hours allow us to provide services to residents at a time that is convenient for them,” explained Carl Bickerdike, Team Lead, Corporate Services.

SNC continues to support our municipal partners by arranging for staff to be available once a month at municipal offices. This will give clients an option of submitting applications or meeting to discuss projects closer to their home instead of having to drive to SNC’s headquarters in Finch. Applicants can contact us to find out more about this option.

During our late night Thursdays, residents can also pick up information on SNC programs or book events in the SNC meeting rooms.

Fully equipped and featuring state-of-the-art technology, the comfortable rooms are available free of charge for not-for-profit groups. To book a room, call 1-877-984-2948 or contact info@nation.on.ca.
