There’s ALWAYS something fun to do at the Hunting & Fishing Heritage Centre
CLOSED but still focused on CONSERVATION
Unfortunately, with the ongoing uncertainty regarding COVID-19 the Heritage Centre remains closed. We can’t wait to return to the Centre and teach youth again, but until then check out our VIRTUAL LESSONS to continue learning about fish and wildlife conservation.
We invite you and your family though for a self-guided tour our stunning wildlife displays, having its own interactive touch screen to provide interesting facts about the fish and animals you see before you. No need to call ahead, just visit us during hours of operation to discover what’s inside.

What our visitors are saying
“What an excellent opportunity to explore conservation in a wonderful, clean, safe facility. My students loved the archery and fishing and want to go back again.”
“Our experience at the OFAH learning center was great! We got the most out of our experience from a variety of activities designed to meet the needs of all our learning styles.”
“Great educational experience for our grade 2 and 2/3 students! Good links to Science curriculum with engaging activities at such a reasonable cost. The fishing was definitely the most popular! Bring lots of parent volunteers to help with that -there is no cost for teachers or volunteers!”

“THANK YOU! Thank you so much for all the work done for my daughter’s birthday this past Saturday. Her and her friends had such an awesome time, that she has said that she wants her birthday there next year too. The organization, the learning games, parachute games and everything in between was just awesome. I have nothing but amazing things to say about the 2 staff members that worked with our party on the weekend.”
