Mount Brydges – Attention teachers! Book your class for a spring conservation or native studies outdoor education program at Longwoods Road Conservation Area and the Ska-Nah-Doht Village and Museum. Let your students ‘step into nature’ to experience all the healthy benefits it has to offer! The marsh is alive with songs of frogs, toads and red-winged blackbirds. In the forests, chipmunks scurry to and fro, spring birds return to build nests for their young and the wildflowers are amazing! 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 JK to Secondary School, College, University, and English as a Second Language – students of all ages 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 marsch creatures, or experience a Carolinian forest – all programs are engaging, fun and directly linked to the Ontario Curriculum. Over 25 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 also 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.
