Going Squirrelly!  Ms Curtis' Class Kindergarten—Grade 1; 1.5 hrs

This interactive program introduces children to tree squirrels, and the adaptations to their forest homes. Your students will experience the changing autumnal forest as these busy acrobats prepare for the winter ahead. 

Ha-bat-itat Mrs. Burgess' Class  Grades 2—3; 1.5 hrs

Bats have fascinated and intrigued people for centuries. Your students will explore and discover the special adaptations these unique flying mammals use to survive and the important role they play in the forest ecosystem. 

Cougars! Ms Bain's and Ms Lee's Class Grades 4—5; 1.5 hrs

Animals are not always easy to find in the woods. Students will fine-tune their problem solving skills and learn to be nature super sleuths by examining a diversity of animal signs. We’ll explore along the trail, investigate animal clues and make casts of an animal track.
