Forest School at Scanlon Creek

We're pleased to offer outdoor learning opportunities for children aged 5 – 10 years old at the Scanlon Creek Forest School. 

Our vision is for each child to develop a sense of belonging in nature through opportunities to play and learn in Scanlon Creek​'s forests, meadows and wetlands, with an educator who understands the power of play and child-directed, hands-on learning. Our belief is that these experiences foster a deeper connection to the land and ignite an ethic of care for the future.​​​​

Our next Forest School session will run in the S​pring. Join our email list or check back in January for more information.
