High Park Nature Centre - who they are and how to donate

The charity for RAYS 2013 is the High Park Nature Centre! Please see below for some information on who they are and how to donate...

The High Park Nature Centre is a community-run, charitable organization that instills awareness, understanding and respect for the natural world. Each year, we engage over 8,000 children, youth and adults in the stewardship and restoration of High Park’s natural environment through fun and engaging hands-on outdoor education. Our year-round programs help visitors to gain an understanding of the park's unique ecology and the importance of conserving the area's natural heritage. We inspire people of all ages to develop closer connections with nature in their city and contribute to the protection of High Park's rare and significant natural areas.
