Please carry out all garbage — conserving the beauty of this natural space is one of rare’s top missions. Please help us keep it clean.

Stay on the trails —rare is home to sensitive vegetation communities that can be trampled with off-trail use

No camping, campfires, foraging, or hunting is permitted anywhere on the reserve.


Leashes are required

We love our four-legged family members as much as you love yours, but due to our
commitment to protecting the delicate ecosystems, the presence of wildlife and children and youth participating in our educational programs, certain trails at our location prohibit dogs and all other trails require dogs to be on a physical leash.

Leashed dogs are welcome on the ECO Centre Trail, Grand Allée, Maple Lane and Deer Run trails.

No dogs are permitted on the Osprey Tower Trail, River Trail, Woodland Trail, Alvar Trail and Butterfly Interpretive Loop.

Your cooperation in adhering to these guidelines is greatly appreciated, as it aids in our conservation, research and educational endeavors while ensuring an enjoyable experience for all visitors.
