How can you fit an entire 682 ha park into a classroom?

Incorporate it into one of our many hands-on, activity-based school programs!

Located in Oakville, Bronte Creek Provincial Park now offers a suite of school programs that complement our in-park educational programs. Let our staff take your group on a journey of discovery as you explore topics such as Victorian heritage, species at risk, biodiversity and much more!

Available programs

The following programs can be taken as stand-alone options or combined to expand the learning experience:

Brontë Creek Exploration: Take learning to the next level by experiencing nature and history firsthand. A visit to Bronte Creek provides opportunities for students to engage in place-based learning, explore the local landscape and reconnect with nature.

Let our staff take your class on an adventure of discovery in our natural oasis in the heart of an urban landscape.

Nature goes digital: Outside our school area of ​​influence? It’s nothing to worry about; We offer video conferencing programs that allow Bronte Creek staff to digitally join their students in the classroom!

Connect your students with a park naturalist to prepare for their next field trip, check in and discuss their post-program projects, ask questions, or present a staff-led program remotely via our video conferencing option. This is a great way to extend your program throughout the school year and enhance your current lessons to include local resources.
