Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Kortright Centre for Conservation (Woodbridge)

Family Tested
High energy
Fall Color

Green power

There are enough trails to overwhelm newcomers. Fortunately, the centre has designed self-guided tours you can download from their website to find your way. In the past, we've enjoyed the Forestry Trail as well as the Marsh Trail (a path running thought the fields to a marsh). Note that the bridge section was under repair when we visited (April 2016). We've walked amidst the snow during the Maple Syrup Time. During our last visit, we did the Power Trip Trail reaching the Bee Space (home to over 2 million bees) a 15-minute walk from the Visitor Centre. Kortright Centre went "green" way before it became trendy and now it can boast that it features one of Canada's largest educational demonstrations of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies. Check the calendar on their website to see when they offer the tour of their sustainable house!
