Nature School and Education Centres’ goal is to promote, in its’ participants a connection to the environment and natural world.
Our outdoor, rain or shine, programs give students regular access to a greenspace they can call their own. Students of all ages will benefit in countless ways with unstructured time in nature.
Our indoor classroom will be nature-based, with natural materials, rich in opportunities for art, inquiry and project-based learning.
Our students will participate in gardening and greening projects, revitalization of habitats and ecological restoration projects, composting, recycling and reduction of waste. Anything we can do to promote stewardship in our students.
We currently offer a Saturday Forest-School program; The Explorers Club, March break and summer camps as well as Nature Immersion, our visiting schools program. Coming spring, 2017, we will be launching the Survivor Squad – a survival skills 10-week program for youth.
All the proceeds from these programs cover the costs for rentals and equipment, any additional funds go towards the acquisition of a permanent space. We see ourselves as becoming a hub for the city and Niagara, where organizations and individuals can combine their efforts to help save the world!
