About MacMillan Nature Reserve

The MacMillan Nature Reserve is one of the larger natural open spaces remaining on the southern section of the Oak Ridges Moraine in York Region and within a rapidly urbanizing area of Vaughan. It is a mix of forest, streams and agricultural lands on a gently sloping topography. The streams running through the MacMillan Nature Reserve are headwater tributaries of the Don River.

What you will be doing

At this event we will be planting native trees on both City of Vaughan and NCC lands to expand the existing native upland deciduous forest in this area.

Why you will love it

By the end of the day you’ll be able to see the difference you’ve made as a former field will be full of native trees; a future forest!
