Open Trails Day at Bill Mason Outdoor Education Centre

Bill Mason Outdoor Education Centre is having its annual Open Trails Day on Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m

Take a hike through the trails and discover the biodiversity of this unique site. Bring your binoculars, camera, magnifying lenses and, most importantly, your curiosity!

This is the only day of this school year when this 77-acre classroom will be open to the public for everyone to explore. Normally, this OCDSB facility is only open to attending students and classes. 

Visitor information:

  • There is plenty of parking at 3088 Dunrobin Road.
  • Visitors are welcome to bring a lunch or picnic. 
  • A fire will be set up at the Dragonfly Gazebo, if you wish to bring items for a cookout lunch.
  • Leashed dogs are welcome.
  • We encourage all visitors to wear long pants, long sleeve shirts, socks and proper outdoor shoes to allow you to be active and protect yourself from mosquitoes and ticks. Sunscreen and bug spray are also recommended.

Check out the event poster to see some of the species that call the Centre their home.

The OCDSB’s Outdoor Education Centres provide high quality, hands-on outdoor programming that is designed and delivered to complement classroom learning in many sections of the Ontario Curriculum. Learn more on the Outdoor Education page.
