January 13, 2018 – Celebrate Family Day in the great outdoors this year with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). Take a trip to Island Lake or Terra Cotta Conservation Areas on February 19 and enjoy a day of family fun.

Island Lake Conservation Area offers a full lineup of activities. Try something new together like kicksledding or riding a fat tire bike. Bring your skates and spend time on the rink and skating trail, or borrow a pair of snowshoes and hit the trails. Learn to ice fish with free demonstrations and tips for kids. Family Day is the last day of our annual ice fishing derby. Rods and huts are available.

Terra Cotta Conservation Area also has Family Day activities. Enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on groomed trails. Visitors will receive 10 per cent off rentals throughout the day. Skating is also available on the rink and skating trail.
