Working with our watershed Boards of Education, private educational institutions, schools and teachers, our school programming is designed to provide students from kindergarten through grade 12 with opportunities to learn about and experience the natural world, ultimately strengthening their connection to the Lake Simcoe watershed.
Through lessons and activities that are experiential, engaging, and based on provincial curriculum, school programming seeks to raise students' awareness and appreciation, increase knowledge and skills, and develop an understanding of environmental, conservation and sustainability issues.
