Mount Brydges – Attention teachers! Book your class for a fall conservation or native studies outdoor program at Longwoods Road Conservation Area and the Ska-Nah-Doht Village and Museum. Hear the autumn calls of the blue jays, the drumming of woodpeckers, the rustling of squirrels and chipmunks and the sounds of school children learning in the great outdoors! Offered year-round, our programming is very popular especially in the fall. Students arrive from as far away as Windsor, Woodstock, Stratford and Sarnia, and as nearby as Delaware and Mount Brydges. From JK, Secondary School, College, University and English as a Second Language classes, students enjoy the outdoor and museum studies at Longwoods. Introducing New Canadians to our heritage and the environment in a natural setting is an experience that cannot be duplicated in the classroom.
Learn about Native communities 1,000 years ago on a tour of a longhouse at Ska-Nah-Doht Village, search for creatures at the marsh, or experience a Carolinian forest – all programs are engaging, fun and directly linked to the Ontario Curriculum. Over 25 different Outdoor Education Programs and eight Native Studies Programs are taught by experienced, qualified Conservation Authority staff. We will even bring some programs to your classroom! Several environmental programs are offered in Chatham-Kent at the C.M. Wilson Conservation Area. Visit our website at www.ltvca.ca and check out our Education Program brochures online. Give us a call at 519-264-2420 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a field trip. We’d be happy to offer suggestions and tailor programs especially designed for your class!
