About Us

Mission: To provide an interactive nature experience for all, building lifelong connections with nature through dynamic and inspiring programs. With a goal of preservation and sustainability we engage the hearts and minds of our staff, volunteers and visitors.

Each year, more than 20,000 visitors come to experience the natural features and accessible trails and  facilities on this unique property.  Many more participate in events and rent facilities for their own private events (i.e. birthday parties).  Others visit Heartland Forest Nature Experience for the educational programs that are popular with children, adults and educators!

The trails are open daily to the public from early morning to dusk.  Please scroll to the bottom of our home page to see the Nature Centre hours of operation.  While general admission (individuals or families) is always FREE, events, programs, and group visits have modest activity fees.
