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
Driven by their own curiosity, children aged 5-10 will explore their connection to the natural world by participating in hands-on, outdoor learning experiences at the Scanlon Creek Forest School. The next session will run on Wednesday afternoons from September 18 - October 23 from 1 - 3:30pm. The cost for the 6 week session is $99 per participant.
Calling all Scouts and Girl Guides! Join us at Scanlon Creek on October 5 for a fun-filled day in nature! See what critters you can find at the bottom of the creek, attract your own feathered friends with your brand new birdfeeder, or build your own shelter in the woods!
With six different programs to choose from, scout and guide groups will have a blast working towards up to two badges in one day!
