Park Advisory – Closures for Deer Harvests

Short Hills Provincial Park will be closed to the public for a First Nation Deer Harvest on November 3 and 26, December 10 and 17, 2020 and January 7 and 27, 2021. Each harvest day will begin one half-hour before sunrise and end one half-hour after sunset.
The park will be closed the morning after each harvest for maintenance until noon.

Ontario respects Aboriginal and treaty rights, as recognized and affirmed under the Constitution Act, 1982, and is committed to meeting the province’s constitutional and other obligations regarding First Nation and Métis people.

First Nation harvesters will use archery equipment and follow safety protocols.
For public safety, ministry staff will be monitoring access points to make the public aware of the temporary closures.
For more information about the harvest call Greg Wilson, Ontario Parks Southwest Zone Manager, at 519-873-4616.
