Place-Based Teacher Learning 

Stanley Park Ecology Society can offer a unique outdoor education day for teachers.  Our team is experienced in outdoor, place-based learning and can demonstrate how you can take your classroom outside with ease.

Teachers have the chance to learn about local plants, animals and ecosystems while walking through forests and wetlands. We provide teachers with examples of how every grade level and subject can find a way to be enhanced in an outdoor classroom, even if it’s a walk around your schoolyard!

We share plant identification, highlighting the native species that you are likely to find in your communities so that you can bring back your own fieldtrip experience to enhance your teaching. 

Together our team has experience leading fieldtrips, camps and outdoor learning workshops. We have backgrounds in ecological restoration and education in sustainability and conservation.
