OMFS acknowledges that we explore, learn and play on the traditional land of the Huron Wendat and the enduring land of the Anishinaabe people. A place where the Chippewas of Rama, Beausoleil, and Georgina Island and many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island call home today. Treaty 16 and the Williams treaties that were broken on this land did not respect the importance of the Anishinaabe relationship to this land. And now we know that being here comes with a responsibility to treat this land with respect and care, opening our hearts to the many Indigenous teachings that can show us the best ways to do so.
OMFS programs run on the property of Sugar Valley Farm, here in Oro Medonte. The property is located off Ingram Rd across from P3 in the Copeland Forest.
This incredible property offers the children endless space to explore and play as it is on 40 acres and adjacent the Copeland Forest together providing a vast area with many trails, creeks, rivers, ponds and other woodland features that make it fantastic for forest school learning.
**Please note – Sugar Valley Farm is private property and the Forest School is only accessible to the public while registered for a program, or by appointment.
