Outreach Programs

Dear Teachers and Group Leaders,

Our parks are currently closed. We are accepting booking requests for the fall of 2020 and beyond. However, we will only be responding to booking requests when we have confirmed a date for our education programs to re-launch. Booking requests will be kept in a queue and will be responded to in the order they were received. Please know that we recognize that you are also operating in uncertain circumstances, your booking request is not a commitment and can be changed or canceled without penalty. Check back to this page regularly for updates related to our re-opening date.

Any questions about Conservation Halton education programming can be directed to Brenna Bartley, Education Manager at bbartley@hrca.on.ca.

Thank you for your support and patience, we are looking forward to being back in our parks and on the trails with students soon! In the meantime, please check out our Nature-Based Home Learning page for resources and videos to support your online classroom.

Until we explore again,
The Conservation Halton Team
