March Break Family Days

Come join us on Wednesday, March 15th and/or Thursday, March 16th from 10am-3pm at Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre for outdoor activities for the whole family to enjoy. All ages are welcome! We want to encourage everyone to come out and have a fantastic time exploring and learning more our natural world. 

Come learn about winter ecology, explore the physics of natural ecosystems, join in some outdoor games, or enjoy hiking and geocaching on our trails. We will be investigating the physics of flight, the speed of sound, snowshoeing, winter survival of animals, recognizing tracks, and so much more! Feel free to bring your own exploration equipment or borrow our snowshoes, GPSs, binoculars, and field guides.  

Please bring your own picnic lunch and there will be hot cocoa and treats available in our main pavilion for participants to enjoy inside or around the campfire. Please remember to dress for the weather!  

Registration is required to attend this event and there will be a fee of $10/child per day, to be paid at arrival. Register here.  

Please note, though parents/guardians are not required to take part in the days activities, they do have to stay on site while activities are taking place.
