Education Naturally has been the cornerstone of nature education for Kindergarten – Grade 8 students in Peel Region since The Riverwood Conservancy (TRC) launched the program in 2005.
Engaging experiences await your class at Riverwood, a 150-acre urban oasis of forests, meadows, ponds, and creeks, situated on the shores of the Credit River in Mississauga.
In this outdoor classroom 400 million years in the making, your young learners will be supported by experienced nature educators and volunteers to foster connections to nature. Through curriculum-focused activities, students learn and grow while interacting with a variety of wildlife, plants, and geologic features.
Our educators can also bring the wonders of nature directly to your classroom through one of our engaging virtual programs.
All of our education programs reflect the new Ontario Curriculum guidelines for science, technology, life systems, and earth and space systems.
We offer fully outdoor, curriculum-connected field trips at Riverwood. Each field trip can host a maximum of 25 people, including both students and adults.
Can't make it to Riverwood? Our talented team of educators can bring nature to you through a virtual program in Zoom, Google Meet, or a platform of your choice.
If you have a K-8 class of special education students, our Enabling Garden programs can connect them to the wonders of nature, either in-person or virtually.
