Nature’s NEAR (Neighbourhood Eco Action Rangers)
It’s a field trip that comes to you! Through a series of engaging activities, we’ll learn about Halton District School Board’s new outdoor and environmental initiative, Nature’s NEAR (Neighbourhood Eco Action Rangers). Rooted in inquiry and place-based education, this initiative aims to connect students and staff to the natural world within their schoolyards in the hopes of fostering stronger community and environmental relationships. We will explore how to make meaningful and accessible outdoor education programs no matter where you are, whether it is a paved schoolyard or flourishing forest!
