Nature School and Education Centres’ goal is to promote, in its’ participants, a connection to the environment and natural world.
Outdoor, rain or shine, programs give students regular access to a green-space they can call their own. Students of all ages will benefit in countless ways with unstructured time in nature.
Our indoor classroom is nature-based, with materials that promote open-ended play, authentic learning and creativity; rich in opportunities for art, inquiry and project-based learning.
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 have programs in Beamsville and St. Catharines, for ages 3.8 to 13 years. We welcome volunteers ages 14+, please contact our volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
