The Gorge Waterway Nature House is a public educational space located in Esquimalt Gorge Park and is operated by Gorge Waterway Action Society, a non-profit organization based out of Victoria. In 2008, the World Fisheries Trust, in partnership with the town of Esquimalt and other local NGOs, opened the Gorge Waterway Nature House with the aim to protect the future of the Gorge and its ecosystem by educating the public and key stakeholders and raising awareness of key local environmental issues. The Nature House has attracted thousands of visitors since its opening, and is an excellent place to make connections in your community.

The Gorge Waterway Nature House Offers:

  1. a live touch tank of live marine animals from our coast
