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.​
