COVID19 Response

COVID-19 Response – May 28th Update

Can we first say how sad we are to provide this update … it is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of our summer adventure camp for 2020. The safety of our campers, their families and our staff is the priority. Full refunds will be provided to those who have registered. Please be patient as this will take a week or so to complete. If you paid online, the card used during registration will be credited, otherwise a cheque will be issued.

We do hope to open our trails for passive use weeknights and weekends in the near future. We have heard from many of you and know that visits to Heartland Forest have been missed. We are working on blocking off our interactive play areas and the area surrounding the Nature Centre so when we do open it will just be for trail walks with reminders to use your bathroom before coming!

Heartland Forest will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will provide ongoing updates as needed on our website and through our social media channels.

As you know, Heartland Forest is a private charitable organization with no government operating funds. We rely on donations, grants, events and facility booking and program revenues. Along with so many, the closure has hit us hard financially. You can help in many practical ways – visit our Nature Shop for hand-crafted items made by our special teams, make a financial donation or volunteer once we are open to the public. Your support is so appreciated.

Thank you for your understanding. From our hearts to yours – stay safe!

Executive Director
