O.F.A.H. Mario Cortellucci Heritage Centre Program Facilitator Jenn Bush was a great help.
I was there to do some interviews about this newest addition to the O.F.A.H. Heritage Centre.
Heritage Education Representative Jenn Bush answered all my questions.
I had previously toured the centre prior to the grand opening last month.
An update to activities to kick things off, a fly tying workshop was held on June 23, and the Ministry of Natural Resources Canine Unit gave a demonstration on June 24. Also scheduled are: the Shimano Night, Kawartha Lakes Bass Fishing Seminar on June 28; a seminar on Gearing up for Family Fishing Week on July 8; an Introduction to Food Plotting on July 14; and a Moose Calling seminar on July 19.

I talked briefly with Executive Director Mike Reader between interviews and he mentioned “There are over 100 people every day visiting the centre”.
I learned there so much to see and do and it’s all free!
The air-conditioned venue seats approximately 70 people, and parking is free. There is no charge to visit to the centre, including the speaker series, until September 1. In addition to the speaker series, the centre is open to the public for tours daily and a series of day camps are being run for O.F.A.H. youth members during the month of August. Group and school tours are also available by appointment.
