The HR Frink Conservation Area has been used an outdoor education centre for local school boards since 1972 and is visited by 15,000 students a year.  The area was named after Herbert Frink, a well-known local educator and conservationist who was an advocate of outdoor education. The Conservation Area is also open to the public. A highlight is the 500-metre Wetland Ecology Boardwalk.

Since 1993, the Friends of the Frink Centre have played an important role by consolidating community support for the HR Frink Conservation Area and Outdoor Education Centre and providing the funding necessary for special projects such as the Wetland Ecology Boardwalk and the Sustainability Demonstration Site/Washroom Facility.
