The Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Centre is a year-round, multi-purpose facility located in the scenic, rolling hills of Northumberland County. It combines the conveniences of a modern building with the rustic surroundings of a diverse natural setting.

Thanks to a contribution from Shell Canada Limited, the Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Centre was built in the summer of 1997. It will be a "gateway to the outdoors" providing an ideal setting for people to enjoy and learn more about the natural environment.

Lower Trent Conservation periodically offers various special events and workshops aimed at providing outdoor recreation and environmental education experiences to the general public. The Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board also operates their outdoor education programs from the Conservation Centre.  The Centre serves also as the base for the Goodrich-Loomis Nature Camp, a summer day camp program for children.

The Conservation Centre offers a perfect setting for all types of functions ranging from small seminars, workshops and social gatherings to larger meetings and celebrations.    

The 2-level building is accessible and barrier free with an open, spacious classroom, cathedral ceiling & view of Cold Creek Valley. There are indoor washrooms and ample parking.
