Education Programs

Let’s Learn, Appreciate and Take Action Together.

We would like to keep encouraging all Oakville residents to enjoy the outdoors and make meaningful connections in nature while staying safe.

Trying to adapt to the new circumstances and to help you provide relevant local content to your students or children, we have created a few videos with curriculum connections and relevant to Oakville residents. Check them out here.

For 2020, we are pleased to offer our Water in Your Backyard program for Grade 2 classes, in partnership with the Oakville Community Foundation.

We believe in the power of environmental education for building greener and stronger communities. Offering free programs to schools and community groups has always been one of the biggest priorities for Oakvillegreen.We hope to be able to offer expanded free programming in the near future as we pursue more funding opportunities. We value our partnerships with all Oakville teachers, students and community members. Thank you for your understanding!
