The access we have to outdoor space and natural lands is one of the most amazing things about Hamilton. We often forget how close we are to trail systems, parks and unique sites. Hiking has become an important family activity for us; on a weekly basis we explore trails, visit parks and make the most of our natural surroundings. Being a Nature Rewards pass holder for the past seven years, we have found it to be an ideal way to support conservation lands and receive tremendous value. In raising awareness, providing venues for education and protecting these resources for young people and future generations, the Nature’s Rewards pass has given us a ticket to explore our great city. Our active lifestyle is well suited to the trails, conservation areas and parks that are so brilliantly linked throughout the community. As a pass holder it helps build greater access for everyone in the community.
