While the centre is closed for the winter we are happy to be able to continue our nature education with Nature in the Classroom programs! From November to March Allan Brooks Nature Centre staff visit classrooms to share information on our local wildlife and habitats. Available for preschool to grade 7, a presentation style program has been designed for each grade based on the grade’s curriculum requirements.

Be a part of Allan Brooks Nature Centre Society community of people that value nature, public programming, educational displays, centre events, workshops, and kids camps.

So how do we stay connected and keep a calm presence during this time?

Here are a few reminders.

  1. A breath of fresh air
    Start your day with a deep breath and continue to do so throughout the day. Reach up to the sky to wake those lungs, muscles, and nerves!
  2. Be mindful of how you are feeling
    Check in with yourself. Are there certain parts of your body holding tension? Try stretching, or simply relaxing your shoulders.
  3. Get out in Nature
    Being outdoors, close to nature is proven to calm our minds and our souls.
  4. Stay Connected to your community
    Use technology to stay connected with loved ones, friends and neighbours.
  5. Remain Healthy
    Follow Social Distancing advice, wash your hands with lots of soap and water for 20 seconds.

We want to do our part in helping parents and educators keep children connected to nature, while still following social-distancing guidelines by providing engaging online educational content and resources. View our online education materials here.
