Education and Outreach
Protecting soil, water, and living things is the goal of the community-created guiding Conservation Strategy document which was developed by a diverse group of people, from all walks of life, from the watershed community. Education is an important part of the Conservation Strategy and we need to work together to create awareness and take positive action.
Education is part of the job of all Ausable Bayfield Conservation employees in all departments. It is especially prominent in the work of our conservation education department.
Conservation educators at Ausable Bayfield Conservation provide a range of quality programs including:
- Curriculum-based Conservation Education Programs for Schools
- Remote Learners and Homeschoolers
- Summer Nature Day Camps
- Families and Community Group Programs
