Our 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 has one of Canada’s largest renewable energy demonstrations, making it an ideal setting for teaching secondary-level 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.
