Nature Education Programs

We connect people to nature by providing opportunities to discover and learn about nature wherever they are in New Brunswick.

All of our programs are interactive and hands-on, whether it’s inside the classroom, outside in the schoolyard, or at a workshop in the community.

We would love to connect you with nature! See below to learn more about our programs for schools, community groups, and nature lovers.

We offer a variety of fun and interactive bilingual programs that are current and curriculum-connected. Each program is around 1 hour long and can also be adapted to fit most grade levels! Depending on the topic and season, we can deliver programs inside or outside.
