Thursday May 20, 20216:30 - 7:30 pm via Zoom Fifty million birds are currently migrating north and our longtime Programs Director, Jon Hayes is joining them! Jon may be moving on to new pastures, but he is leaving behind a rich legacy through the many ways he has shaped and guided the High Park Nature Centre over the past 15 years. Join us to celebrate Jon at his last program at the Nature Centre! We'll sing along to some of Jon's original nature songs and he'll lead us in a few of his favourite activities, including a bird drawing game and a test of our moth knowledge! Jon will take us for a virtual journey down memory lane, sharing some special moments and places in High Park. We'll sing a farewell song by joining our voices in a raucous bird choir performance...Conk-a-ree!

https://www.naturalcuriosity.c... Led by Rosa Na & Danielle Marcoux Hunter Natural Curiosity offers a powerful way to engage students in learning about their world. As more educators turn to the outdoors amid COVID-19, there are many compelling reasons for integrating environmental inquiry – a process shaped by students’ questions and theories – into our teaching practice. The Indigenous lens in Natural Curiosity 2nd Edition provides a starting point for all educators to consider the importance of Indigenous perspectives in environmental and all learning. The framework encourages educators to find their own ways to build upon children’s sense of wonder and to create a culture of community learning that is purposeful, responsive, and deeply engaging. How might an awareness of Indigenous perspectives inform our practice over time, as we explore lasting connections to the natural world with our students? This webinar will present opportunities for thinking about how we can effectively and sensitively integrate inquiry, experiential learning, and an Indigenous lens into a better normal that “breathes with the world”. We invite educators to light the fire of your professional inquiry by exploring how Indigenous perspectives can transform learning in all classrooms. This experience is in affiliation with High Park Nature Centre’s NSERC funded PD Course: How to Make Nature Your Classroom - Spring Splendour. In this FREE course, discover a wealth of spring activities students will love, and feel calm and confident taking your teaching outdoors! This webinar is also open to the general public and folks who are not educators.
