Outdoor Programs > Boreal Woods



Outdoor Classroom programs at the Boreal Woods Nature Centre are held in the southern edge of the boreal forest near the Grand Beach area of Lake Winnipeg, about an hour from Winnipeg.

The site includes a classroom, indoor kitchen and dining facilities, an outdoor shelter, two fire pits, three-season flush toilets, as well as three trails, including a Wellness Trail in devlopment. The trails access diverse areas of the forest with native plants, trees, mosses, lichens and fungi. The Manitoba Model Forest Demonstration Trail winds through the property, highlighting forest sustainability and management.


Teachers and chaperones attend free. Find our map or
