Building a New Nature Centre

​The current Nature Centre has been the anchor of LSRCA's outdoor education in the Lake Simcoe area since the 1980s. Constructed of three re-purposed portables, the Nature Centre housed numerous Outdoor Education programs, camps and community programs. Sadly the building is at the end of life and if not rebuilt, Outdoor Education will come to an end at Scanlon Creek. Take your own Virtual Tour of the Nature Centre!
