Be a Watershed Steward

Subsidies available for new Watershed Steward Program

We offer interactive environmental programs that are both educational and fun. These programs are offered at our Environment Centre, on Pioneer Road in Peterborough, and typically last 1½ hours each. A typical school field trip visit starts at 9:30am and ends at 2:30pm, and includes two program periods.


Rate
: $10/student/day.

Please note: We are currently redeveloping some of our programming. We will be updating existing programs and introducing new programs in the upcoming months. Listed below are our up to date program offerings. If there is a topic that you do not see listed below but are interested in exploring please contact us. We are happy to work with you to create a day specifically geared to you and what your students are learning in the classroom. 

Feel free to contact us about modifying programs to suit older or younger students.
