Our enthusiastic teaching staff bring a great range of skills and experience to our programming, and their excitement for nature is infectious. Our natural lands are truly one-of-a-kind, boasting beautiful trails, globally significant wetlands and a staggering diversity of plant and animal species. Our programs are modern, comprehensive, curriculum-based, and most importantly, FUN!

Our constant efforts to improve and grow have brought about some changes and enhancements for the 2015/2016 programming year. For a complete listing of our programs, please explore our program guide below. If you have any questions, we are always happy to answer them – just call 905-527-1158 ext. 276 or email . We hope you find something to suit your needs, and we look forward to seeing you and your students this year!

Our Program Philosophy

At RBG we build our programs on a foundation of inquiry-based and experiential learning. We believe in allowing students to ask questions and follow their curiosity. We know that there is no substitute for a direct experience in nature, and that given the right opportunity, students can create meaningful connections that last a lifetime.

Our programs use active, hands-on exploration and activities to engage students, and to immerse them in the natural world. We integrate up-to-date science and research, and tailor our programs to complement current Ontario curricula. Most importantly, we know that fun must be an integral part of education, and that the best learning often happens when you least expect it.

With best regards,
Sabrina Hall
Manager of Customer Programs
