Teachers are calling to book their classes into our spring conservation and native studies outdoor programs at Longwoods Road Conservation Area and the Ska-Nah-Doht Village and Museum. The park is alive with the spring songs of birds, the drumming of woodpeckers, the rustling of squirrels and chipmunks and the sounds of hundreds of school children learning in the great outdoors! Offered year-round, our programming is very popular especially in the spring.
Students arrive from as far away as Windsor, Woodstock, Stratford and Sarnia, and as nearby as Delaware and Mount Brydges. From Junior Kindergarten to Secondary School, College and University, even English as a Second Language – students of all ages enjoy the outdoor and museum studies at Longwoods Road Conservation Area.
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 programs online. Give us a call at 519-264-2420 or email us at email@example.com regarding booking a field trip. We’d be happy to offer suggestions and tailor programs especially designed for your class! School boards may still have financial assistance to support outdoor education experiential learning activities – check this out!
Owned and operated by the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority, Longwoods Road Conservation Area’s 155 acres of Carolinian forest, wetlands and ravine systems provide a variety of natural habitats to learn about the environment in the outdoors. Facilities are wheelchair accessible, including the Resource Centre / Museum, Ska-Nah-Doht Village, woodland bridges and boardwalk systems. Two hundred year old heritage log cabins offer unique teaching classrooms and shelter during the lunch time. Many schools enjoy bringing a barbecue lunch to have at the pavilion as a treat for their students.
