Elementary

For more than three decades, the Kortright Centre for Conservation has been providing quality, hands-on environmental education to students outside the classroom. Our suite of programs for youngsters in kindergarten through Grade 8 includes topical, curriculum-linked lessons featuring some of the most innovative technologies in Canada.

NEW! Early Years Forest School Program

This inquiry-based two-hour program is specifically designed for Early Years Centers. Children interact with the natural environment through stationed activities that can include loose parts, creative play, shelter building, whittling wood, fire, knots, making woodland crafts and sharing stories.

WHY BRING YOUR ELEMENTARY CLASS TO KORTRIGHT?

Each topic emphasizes the individual’s role and responsibility in maintaining a healthy environment through sustainable living practices.
