Our team of educators will lead your students through a virtual presentation with hands-on activities encouraging your students to rediscover the ecosystems that exist in their very own backyards!

Field studies operate during May, June, September, and October. These full- or half-day programs are available for grades 4-12 at various field sites across the province.
