Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, CAO Rob Baldwin gives the latest update on the Connect Campaign to build a new Nature Centre at Scanlon Creek.
In March of 2021, the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) education team (General Manager Brian Kemp, Manager Nicole Hamley and the team of Outdoor Educators), sat down and began a detailed review of the conceptual design and the alignment with the future of outdoor education at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area. Since the conceptual design of the new Nature Centre was provided back in April of 2017 by Brook McIlroy, a lot has changed. The complement of Outdoor Education staff, current and planned outdoor education programming and even trends in outdoor education. All of this and more needed to be reviewed when considering a final design.
