OUTDOOR SCHOOL PROGRAMS

We are excited to invite your class for an outdoor ed-venture here at Mossom Creek Hatchery and Education Centre. Each workshop provides students with unique hands-on learning opportunities beyond the walls of their classroom; creating exciting shared experiences that bridge curricular content with a real world connection and understanding. We seek to inspire students to explore the nature world and discover our roles and responsibilities as members of the ecosystem community.
