Effective immediately, Cataraqui Conservation has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of its Maple Madness festivities.
Originally scheduled to run for the entirety of March Break, as well as all remaining weekends in March, the current public health concerns related to COVID 19, and our concern for the health and welfare of area residents, staff and volunteers, necessitated this move.
“As an organization, we continue to ensure the safety and health of our employees, volunteers as well as area residents, therefore we felt it was important to take the extraordinary step of cancelling all Maple Madness programs and activities,” said Katrina Furlanetto, Cataraqui Conservation General Manager.
All conservation area properties remain open, including the Cataraqui Trail, and we continue to encourage people to get outside on our trails, get some exercise and perhaps find some peace and relaxation while spending time communing with nature.
As a reminder, our conservation areas include Little Cataraqui Creek, Marshlands and Lemoine Point in Kingston, Gould Lake in South Frontenac Township, Parrott’s Bay in Loyalist Township, and both Lyn Valley and Mac Johnson Wildlife Area in the Brockville Area.

Senior Cataraqui Conservation staff continue to evaluate the situation and will make timely announcement regarding any changes or alterations to our regular programs and services as warranted.
