Longwoods Road / Ska-Nah-Doht Village Education Programs – Outdoor Field Trips
Educators and Community Groups!
This fall we are offering outdoor programming at Ska-Nah-Doht Village and Longwoods Road Conservation Area. It will look a little different than usual!
Its framework will adhere to current COVID-19 government, local health unit guidelines and LTVCA standard operating procedures, developed to keep the public and our staff safe. The well-being of our employees and the members of the public continues to be the top priority of the LTVCA during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Contact us to find out how we will be teaching in the outdoors this fall and what we plan to offer!
