Nurturing Knowledge and Skills for a Greener Future

Welcome to Willow Park Ecology Centre—our award-winning outdoor education centre! We are located in the charming hamlet of Norval in Halton Hills, Ontario, at the confluence of the Credit River and sparkling Silver Creek.

Our ecology centre offers school and community programs and events in a visitor-friendly 5-acre outdoor space. It’s a site we transformed during our first years of operation from a grassy trailer park into a scenic series of diverse ecosystems. It now provides a home to a growing number of native Ontario habitats,  plants and animals.

We’re open year-round to offer fun, engaging, nature-based programs for children, teens and adult volunteers and learners.
