Lindsay, ON – March 21, 2017 – With Spring almost upon us, now is a great time for teachers in the Kawartha Watershed to book outdoor education sessions and classes for their students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Outdoor education classes and programs at Kawartha Conservation are an affordable way to bring students into a natural, outdoor setting where they get to experience hands-on learning in a fun environment.
Classes are all based on the Ontario education curriculum which provides teachers with an opportunity to book classes that directly relate to subject areas their students are already taking.
“The feedback we have received from teachers and students is great,” said Nancy Aspden, Coordinator, Environmental Programs/GIS Specialist. “At Ken Reid Conservation Area, our outdoor education classes bring learning to life and engage students in new, fun and meaningful ways.”
Classes range from science-based programs including water bugs, soil types, wetlands and plants, to environmental recreation programs including orienteering, and environmental art programs including environmental sculpting and nature photography.
“With more than a dozen different classes and sessions as part of our outdoor education program, there is definitely something for teachers and students in all ages and grades,” said Ms. Aspden. “The Spring sessions fill up quickly, so we encourage teachers and schools to contact us early to ensure they get the day and session they want.”
