Waterside Theatre/Rain location Africa Picnic Site
Free with admission
The Toronto Zoo’s Turtle Island Conservation is celebrating National Indigenous People Day. For generations, many Indigenous peoples and communities have celebrated their culture and heritage on or near this day due to the significance of the summer solstice as the longest day of the year. Aboriginal history is full of stories of biodiversity and conservation practices, illustrating just how cherished our natural surroundings are. This is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to the protection of biodiversity here in Ontario.
Free admission will be provided to Aboriginal peoples with the presentation of a status card, Metis card, or an Inuit Health Branch Client Identification Number (N-Number).
