Welcome to the Legacy Center
Legacy Project

Learning changes lives and it's the only thing that can change the world. Taking a multigenerational, big-picture approach in a one-of-a-kind natural setting, the Legacy Center offers lifelong education in a new way. Relax, renew, and reperspective at the Legacy Center.

Welcome to the Legacy Center

A shaft of sunlight beams through the towering trees. The calls of birds echo as leaves rustle in the wind. A fish glides silently through the clear water.

A contemplative walk offers you clarity. An idea ignites your imagination. A new perspective challenges your thinking. Welcome to the Legacy Center.

In a world of too much, too fast, the Legacy Center offers an opportunity to relax, renew, and reperspective. In keeping with the Legacy Project's goals, the Legacy Center helps you create new approaches to learning and living, make valuable connections with leaders and thinkers, and discover action strategies to change the world to deal with challenges like the environment.

Legacy can either be a burden or a gift across generations – the choice is ours. The Legacy Project's working concept of LegacyCubed is a powerful one. It takes a big-picture approach, drawing on the natural and social sciences.

Attracting visitors from across the continent, the Legacy Center's learning experiences and workshops for all ages offer an opportunity to explore past, present, and future in meaningful ways. Not only does the Legacy Center touch the lives of those who are able to visit it, but also a much wider audience through the associated books, DVDs, and online experiences.

It all begins on a very special natural site – a legacy gift in the truest sense – just north of Toronto, Canada. Forty years ago, one man with vision planted the seeds to create a unique legacy. That legacy is now being carried forward for children and adults to enjoy today, and for generations to enjoy tomorrow. Over the decades, hundreds of specimen quality trees and a variety of native plants have flourished in the arboretum. A lush, 50-foot high Cedar hedge frames the grounds. A Maple forest – dotted with Trilliums in the Spring and bursting with reds and golds in the Fall – fills one corner. A large, spring-fed pond teaming with fish, birds, and water plants is cradled in another corner. Three islands are linked with walking bridges. The Legacy Labyrinth offers a unique way to connect this inspiring natural environment with an inner journey.

The arboretum surrounds the Legacy Center building, a unique circular structure. An expansion is being designed by award-winning architectural team Shim-Sutcliffe. The Legacy Center brings together art and science, beauty and technology, the manmade and the natural.

The Legacy Center explores and demonstrates what we term "Legacy Living." At its most fundamental level, Legacy Living is about the timely and the timeless over the typical or the trendy. The concept will evolve as the Legacy Center evolves, particularly as it fulfills its long-term role not only as an education center but also as a real-life research site with a focus on renewable energy and environmental practices. The ways in which we interact with our world, the ways in which we affect the environment, are a critical part of the legacy we leave for future generations.

The Legacy Center is receiving international attention. Its work is framed by the vision of Legacy Project Chair Susan V. Bosak. Together with the Legacy Project's core team, and guided by our Advisory Board, we are developing a very special place, space, and concept.
