Wish to make nature experiences outside the classroom a regular part of your students’ education? Make nature your classroom with our At School in High Park program which is specially designed for schools who would like to integrate nature-based education at High Park within their curricula. Sign up today to have your students attend a weekly outdoor nature club in High Park and enrich their educational experience!

For more information, and to schedule your class for a weekly nature club at High Park, please contact our School Programs Supervisor

All in-person programs will meet outside the High Park Nature Centre at 375 Colborne Lodge Drive.

It’s important to be prepared for all-weather outdoor activities. Here are items and clothing to bring to the High Park Nature Centre:

  • Reusable water bottle
  • Weather-appropriate clothing (ex. Waterproof pants and coats when rain is expected)
  • Closed-toe, weather-appropriate shoes
    • Closed-toe shoes protect from insect bites (ex. Ticks or red ants) and poison ivy. 
  • Clean facemask (optional)
  • Nut-free, litterless snacks (optional)

Teachers are expected to take an active role in managing the behaviours of their students. Read more about our behaviour policy by visiting our registration policy page.

The High Park Nature Centre promotes awareness and respect for nature through year-round, hands-on outdoor nature education and park stewardship activities. We strongly believe that an important part of connecting with nature involves responsible, active outdoor play.

At Nature Centre programs, we engage in activities such as exploring in soil, hiking in the forest, and balancing on logs-this often results in getting dirty! Our leaders prioritize safety by establishing clear guidelines for all participants and supervising activities.

If you have questions or would like to learn more about active outdoor play, please talk with us.
