Located on the Oak Ridges Moraine in King Township, north of Toronto, the Koffler Scientific Reserve (KSR) at Jokers Hill is an internationally recognized site for cutting-edge research and education in biodiversity, ecology and conservation biology.

Courses offered by the University of Toronto bring students to Koffler Scientific Reserve for the type of hands on experience in natural environments that no campus can offer.

Learning is life long. Koffler Scientific Reserve offers instructive and entertaining learning experiences through special events, including informal guided Nature Walks and more intensive Natural History Workshops. A system of public walking trails offers an opportunity to experience an important piece of Ontario’s natural heritage.


Remembering Murray Koffler (1924-2017)

Murray Koffler and his wife Marvelle generously donated their home estate to the University, which now forms our Koffler Scientific Reserve. We recognize and thank him and his family for their numerous contributions and leadership.
