West Ottawa Adventure

Exploring the Bill Mason Outdoor Educational Centre

Northern Green Frog (Lithobates clamitans melanota) Bill Mason Centre, Dunrobin, Ontario, Canada.

The Bill Mason Centre is an outdoor educational area that allows students to explore nature and learn of flora & fauna on a system of trails & boardwalks through a large marsh in western Ottawa. At this location a wide variety of animals & wildlife can be discovered & the extensive trails are quiet when the students aren't embarked on learning. One of the best parts is a sandy lake located just on the outskirts of the education centre boundaries. Here Tiger Beetles abound, frogs bask on the shoreline & beavers can be found hard at work.
