Our education team offers programmed learning opportunities for children, youth and adults, enhancing participants connections to the health of the Lake Simcoe watershed in areas where they live, learn, work and play.
Through activities that are experiential, engaging, and age-appropriate, community programming seeks to raise participants' awareness and appreciation, increase knowledge and skills, and develop an understanding of environmental, conservation and sustainability issues.

Forest School at Scanlon Creek
Every week brings something new as children aged 4 to 6 years old guide daily activities with their interests and curiosities.
Each session is filled with wonder as children explore, build and play in Scanlon Creek’s forests, meadows and wetlands. They experience hands-on and child-directed learning that is unhurried and supported as we explore the natural world together.
