The Best Canadian Reptile Experience!

Scales Nature Park focuses on the conservation of reptiles, amphibians, and fish through education, research, and conservation activities.

Found a rare, nesting, injured, or dead reptile in central Ontario? Call or text our Reptile Hotline at 705-955-4284! We may send a team out to gather data and/or provide assistance.


Update - Fall 2021: Scales Nature Park is currently CLOSED to the public until further notice. We look forward to connecting with you through our virtual or physically distanced outreach programming, Herpetology Internship Program, and online gift shop!


Though our doors are closed, our conservation work continues, with a strong focus on field research activities and the ongoing care of all of our animals. We look forward to seeing everyone again in person when we are able to!
