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 5-acre outdoor ecology centre was transformed 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 school and community programs and events that engage children, teens, and adult volunteers and learners.

We have structured activities with nature stewardship, gardening, discovery, games, and art while linking curriculum-based home-schooled with elements of the Forest School model.
