K-12 School Programs
We love coming to visit our local schools!
If you are a teacher who is looking to have us come in to do a presentation or hands-on activity to reinforce the learning of your curriculum, we are here to help!
Our presentations tend to focus on watersheds, waterways, and wetlands and how to look after them through our restoration, monitoring and storm water awareness activities, but we can customize presentations to fit in with your curriculum goals. Please give us a call to discuss how we can help you.
If you are looking for resources to use on your own, please check out our Habitat in a Box program below.

Early Learning Centres
We love learning about our watershed with early learners!

If you are looking for ways to take your learning outside, let us know!
