Education Programs

Essex Region Conservation believes that the students of today are the environmental stewards of tomorrow. We offer hands-on Outdoor Education programs at several conservation areas in the form of field trips. All of our Education Programs are tailored to fit each grade level (K-12) and meet the Ontario Curriculum for Science, Social Studies, History, Geography, and more!

Children can also participate in our Teen Ranger Program or Junior Curator Program.
Additionally, the Essex Region Children’s Water Festival is held annually each May, and Grades 3 – 5 students will learn the importance of water and how to protect it.
