The current climate has given Heartland Forest a new level of clarity and commitment to our mission

‘Inspiring people of all ages and all abilities to respect, protect, and enjoy the world of nature’.

With this in mind, the Board of Directors is excited to share that we are renovating the Discovery Atrium and Café within the Nature Centre with a planned re-opening in June 2022. The Discovery Atrium will feature interactive and educational exhibits that showcase our unique property and allow our animals to be on permanent display. It will be truly magical.

In order to protect our vulnerable program participants, the Nature Centre has been closed to the public since the start of the pandemic. This has allowed us to continue our unique programming. In fact, Heartland Forest’s commitment to the special needs’ community was recognized with a 2021 Regional Chair’s Niagara Impact Award, acknowledging that we went above and beyond to improve the quality of life of those living in the region during the pandemic. Now it is time to re-open!

With these changes the Nature Centre will no longer be open to facility rentals. Pavilion rentals within our beautiful park are available from May to September with fun birthday party package options. Please visit our website for more information –

More information coming soon!
