Quinte Conservation's outdoor education programs are available throughout the year. They can be delivered at a number of conservation areas across the watershed. These environmental outdoor programs offer hands-on learning experiences in nature. We offer them to public and private schools, nurseries and day cares, homeschool groups, youth groups, day camps, and service groups.


We customize our outdoor programs to meet current learning goals and curriculum objectives. An experienced outdoor education staff delivers these programs. Groups can choose specific program activities or select grade-specific curriculum connected programs. Please inquire about grade-specific programming. Email mnavrot@quinteconservation.ca
