Outdoor Environmental Education


Give your students the opportunity to experience nature through our hands-on, curriculum linked field trips, available for all grade levels. 

Offered in our Conservation Areas, favourite programs include our exploring walks with a pond study, snowshoeing (Jan-Feb), and sugar bush tours (March).  We also offer programs focused on animals, plants, orienteering, GPS, habitats, biodiversity, invasive species, art in nature, stream study, project wild activities, and wetlands.
