At the Yukon Conservation Society, we believe in getting people outside to connect with nature. We offer free, fun interpretive programming for all ages throughout the summer at Miles Canyon, Canyon City, and other Whitehorse parks.

Through our free guided hikes and Kids’ Ed-Ventures at Miles Canyon, we help visitors and locals alike learn about conservation by exploring nature. We also offer a glimpse into the Yukon’s First Nations heritage and Gold Rush history. See human and natural history come to life before your eyes as you explore and learn with our trail guide interpreters!

In McIntyre Creek Park, we’re working to protect the area from harmful development and support Whitehorse residents in their enjoyment of the trails. With community support we created interpretive panels and self-guided hike  pamphlets for the area. We also conduct citizen science such as the McIntyre Creek BioBlitz to collect vital data about the ecosystem.

We promote the responsible use of trails and greenspace throughout Whitehorse and the Yukon. Did you know that Whitehorse has over 800 km of trails for you to explore? Stop by the office to pick up a copy of our Hikes and Bikes book ($20), a great guide to hikes in and around Whitehorse.
