School Programs

As a satellite facility of the Queen’s University Biological Station, the Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre offers curriculum-based programs that encourage students to explore and measure local biodiversity through field-based scientific investigation.

While historically our school programs are particularly aligned to meet the needs of Grade 9 Science (Sustainable Ecosystems) and Grades 11 & 12 Biology (Biodiversity), we are expanding our programs to subjuects such as geography and environmental science, and to other grades, from kindergarten to college. This is a great fit for private schools, ESL classes, Eco-Teams, and home-schooled students!  Our programs complement in-class lessons teaching ecological principles, and offer more in-depth study and hands-on experience in a variety of areas.
