Wildlife in Your Classroom - Virtual School Programs
Each year, thousands of children are introduced to the wonders of nature through school programs at the Richmond Nature Park. Due to COVID-19, brand new virtual programs have been developed to offer a new, virtual learning experience.
Wildlife in Your Classroom is designed for students in Kindergarten through Grade 4. Interactive presentations include activities, demonstrations, taxidermy, multimedia visuals and a Q&A session with the naturalist, if time permits.
Animals in My Neighbourhood
Learn about the basic needs that all animals have, their adaptations to survive, why they live in our neighbourhoods and how we can co-exist with them.
Educators have a choice of two different Wildlife in Your Classroom programs. Register for one or both!
1. Animals in My Neighbourhood - Skunks and Coyotes
2. Animals in My Neighbourhood - Raccoons and Snow Geese
$85/class or homeschool group. The maximum for a classroom is 24 students and 10 students for homeschool groups.
Strong internet connection and access to a video/sound system. We recommend connecting your laptop to a smartboard or a projector and ensuring the speakers are enabled to provide an optimal experience.
