About Our Location

The Windfall Ecology Centre is located on a 58 acre heritage estate in the heart of Aurora Ontario, 30 minutes from downtown Toronto. Known as Sheppard's Bush, the property was donated to the Ontario Heritage Trust in 1972 by its original owners whose name it bears.

Situated on a rise of rolling land and surrounded by majestic Maple forest is the stately 3 story 5000 square foot home of Windfall Ecology Centre — the original Sheppard family home built in 1920.
