Kortright Environmental Education Programs

Environmental Education

For more than three decades, the Kortright Centre for Conservation has been providing quality, hands-on environmental education to students outside the classroom. This year, bring your class to the Kortright Centre, where our suite of environmental education programs continues to grow and evolve to include topical, curriculum- linked lessons that feature some of the most innovative technologies in Canada.

  • Programs focus on learning through direct observation and participation in outdoor activities that will allow students to discover fascinating facts about the plant and wildlife populations and their interactions within these ecosystems.
  • The Kortright Centre also has one of Canada's largest renewable energy demonstrations. This is an ideal setting for teaching students about alternative energy; solar thermal, photovoltaic (solar electric), wind and biomass.
  • Each topic emphasizes the individual's role and responsibility in maintaining a healthy environment through sustainable living practices.
  • All programs are designed to meet curriculum expectations at the grade levels specified, and are presented by experienced professional instructors.
