Announcing a special Winter Photo Contest!

Please wear a mask when you walk through the garden, even though it is outside. Bring your camera along as you walk through for exercise and fresh air. Stay at least two metres apart and do not congregate with others from outside your household. The current guidelines restrict outdoor gatherings to fewer than five people. If there are already five visitors in the garden, please visit another time instead. Currently, the Hamilton Conservation Authority remains open with similar guidelines.

This year only, the Urquhart Butterfly Garden and the Hamilton Conservation Authority invite you to participate in a special Winter Photo Contest at the garden and Canal Park!

Please read the following carefully, as it is a little different than the summer photo contest. Photos must be taken between January 15, 2021 through April 15, 2021. As this contest is in partnership with the Hamilton Conservation Authority, it also includes Canal Park. See the map below for the approximate contest boundary.

Send your entries to before midnight on April 15. Good luck!
