Our Response to COVID-19

Following the Region of Waterloo’s advice to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have closed our offices, but our business continues with rare staff and volunteers working remotely as much as possible. All rare staff will continue to respond to emails and phone messages that we receive. Please stay in touch, we want to hear from you and look forward to connect.

I can assure you that at rare, we want to further enhance public health measures to prevent the spread of the virus to the most vulnerable in our community, so all of our events up to the end of April have been cancelled until further notice.

Although our events will not be running as planned, we encourage you to see our list of family-friendly activities from our education department. You may also practice your physical distancing in nature – the eight kilometres of trails at rare are open and free to the public for your enjoyment. Nature can be a refuge at a time when so many of us are experiencing the anxiety of current circumstances and isolation, so please take the time to breathe in the fresh air! We depend so much on nature, and our efforts to enjoy and protect the land are more important now than ever, because of the many benefits it can provide to us in times of crisis. If you would like to contribute to rare’s efforts in conservation during this challenging time, please click here and help our work continue.

Please feel free to check-in with rare staff if you have any messages, questions or concerns. We will be sure to address them and we promise to keep you updated as we weather this unprecedented event.
