Get your toonies ready this Earth Day and drive through the annual rare Road Toll. It's voluntary of course but we encourage the 12,000 cars that travel through the rare reserve along Blair Road to swing in the parking lot and get to know us. We have free coffee in the morning and baked treats in the afternoon. Staff collect donations in buckets and hand out info about rare. It's always nice to see a friendly face and we keep things moving so if you know anyone that travels in the area, encourage them to stop too!
Looking for a great way to get involved on Earth Day and make a positive environmental impact? Come out to rare and celebrate Earth Day by helping with our Earth Day Clean Up. With 12,000 cares driving down Blair Road each day there is an ongoing need to help keep the property clean and the litter to a minimum. This event is free! Gloves and garbage bags provided!

Watch where you step! The Spring is a magical time at rare. Join Ross Dickson for an interactive hike through the Cliffs & Alvars area to discover the splendor of Spring. Look for awakening plants and wildflowers, signs of animals astir, and spot birds arriving back to rare or just passing through on their journey to more northern climes. NOTE: This hike is moderately strenuous over uneven terrain. Please bring a water bottle, dress for the weather, and wear good footwear for cold, potentially muddy trails.
