3 About Rouge Park Rouge Park is over 40 km 2 within the Rouge River, Petticoat Creek and Duffins Creek watersheds The Park forms part of Ontario s Greenbelt, and it represents Canada s largest natural environment park in an urban setting Rouge Park was formally established in 1994, by the Province of Ontario, following years of citizen support for the preservation of the Rouge River valley Rouge Park offers a unique brand of local, low-impact tourism that will inspire our visitors to become involved in conservation, preservation and sustainable activities Work is in progress to see Rouge Park become Canada s first Urban National Park

4 The only place in the GTA for Torontonians to easily and conveniently access the Greenbelt Rouge Park is an important part of the GTA s green infrastructure, providing ecological services such as clean air and abundant clean water; we aim to encourage our visitors to embrace these values Rouge Park is home to 16 kilometres of walking on 9 trails, in the Toronto section, frequently accessed by a variety of visitors with positive and supportive feedback Rouge Park offers approximately 7 million people in the GTA a nearurban wilderness experience, within an hour s drive

5 Heritage Appreciation and Visitor Experience (HAVE) Plan Education, interpretation and activity programming, signage and communications Inform, Involve and Inspire visitors and volunteers toward active stewardship of the Park Enhance public awareness of our relationship to and dependence upon the natural world, and our connections with the past Increase visits to the Park, and with that, tourism to this important area of the Greenbelt

6 Nature Walk and Ambassador Programs Part of the HAVE Plan Introduce new (and regular) visitors to the Park and our trail system Offer help to show the way and introduce visitors to the Park Navigation Interpretation Education Safety Share with visitors and helps to enforce the importance of responsible trail use, trail skills and Park code of conduct Give visitors a chance to enjoy our trails in many ways, for example: Fitness Nature and wildlife Photography History Family outing

7 Trail Volunteer Program Overall Impact Create a link between the Park and our visitors to promote awareness of the Park s special place and function in the GTA, the Greenbelt and the province Spark the flame toward active involvement and care of the Park - Stewardship Make Rouge Park a destination for a fun, informative, safe and social outing anytime of year

8 What is the Difference Between a Walk Leader and an Ambassador? Walk leaders take groups of visitors on planned walks on Rouge Park s trails. They plan outings reflecting the time of year or a level of activity, or other theme, to attract different visitors to come out. Each walk has its own character. Ambassadors use Rouge Park s trails and trail head/parking areas as places to engage and welcome visitors who are coming as self-guided walkers. They help those visitors get acquainted with the Park, even if they come often, as there is always something to update, i.e. trail conditions. Both volunteers aim to imbue in Rouge Park visitors a sense of pride and care of the Park through positive words and actions, and being a role model of stewardship. This includes explaining to self-guided and guided walkers the Park s code of conduct, and responding accordingly to actions that are not in keeping with that code, i.e. dogs off leash, walking off trail.

9 Volunteers Show the Way to a Great Outing in the Park! You may be the first Rouge Park face a visitor sees a smile starts it off!
