The Halloween and harvest events have come to an end, but there’s still plenty to see and do, including live performances, arts and crafts, and exploring our many conservation areas. Check out all the fun things going on in #BurlON this week.

Get out into nature

The cold weather is creeping in, but that’s no excuse not to enjoy the great outdoors! Visit one of the many conservation areas in Burlington for a hike, a bike ride, or just a nice picnic! See the escarpment light up with fall colours from Rattlesnake Point, or see birds of prey at the Raptor Centre in Mountsberg.
