Mount Brydges – ‘Step into Nature’ and book your class for unique fall conservation and native studies outdoor programs 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 preparing for winter and the sounds of school children learning in the great outdoors! Sit inside our new longhouse! 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. Introduce New Canadians to our heritage and the environment in a natural setting for an experience they will never forget – outdoor learning 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, and experience a Carolinian forest – all programs are engaging, fun and directly linked to the Ontario Curriculum. New this year are our blended programs that highlight First Nations and the environment! 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.
