Our outdoor programs foster a sense of stewardship and sustainable development of our natural resources. NREC is the first educational facility of its kind in Atlantic Canada.

We offer the following:

  • Boardroom/Library (for additional meeting space)

  • Year-round curriculum-based programs, both on-site and off-site.
  • Community group programming (i.e. Scouts, Girl Guides, etc)
  • 3 km of hiking trails
  • Scenic look-off and picnic areas

Our 80 hectare (120 acre) woodland provides opportunities for hikes, exhibits and demonstrations. Self-guided interpretive trails can be used for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or nature hikes. One of our trails is seasonally wheelchair accessible.
