CRCA Outdoor & Environmental Education Programs

Enjoy the great outdoors and give your students the opportunity to learn in an outdoor classroom where they can explore and connect with nature. The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority offers a wide range of quality curriculum enriched outdoor and environmental education programs for all ages at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area in Kingston and Mac Johnson Wildlife Area in Brockville. All of our programs foster a strong connection to nature by guiding students with their head, heart and hands. Our Conservation Educators have over 40 years combined experience teaching pre-school to adult-age learners and enjoy passing on their love and extensive knowledge of nature and the outdoors.
