Pinery Eco-Immersion Experience

Pinery’s Senior Park Interpreters invite groups of students and educators to engage in an Eco-Immersion Experience, in partnership with Ontario Parks. Classroom visits, day trips to Pinery, or facilitated discussions over video conference will allow students to spend time learning outside. For more information, or to book a program, please email PineryNaturalists@ontario.ca or call the Visitor Centre at (519) 243-8537.

What is an Eco-Immersion Experience?

Our three phase programming will address curriculum through experience, by learning about natural history and resource management at Pinery! Students will spend time outside, while learning about relevant unit topics. Teachers can collaborate with Senior Park Interpreters to develop a program to meet the needs of the class.
