HDSB Nature's NEAR - Neighbourhood Eco Action Rangers
You don't have to go far... Nature is NEAR!
Nature’s NEAR is a Halton District School Board Outdoor and Environmental Education Initiative that launched in January 2020. The Initiative is led by Naturalist and Outdoor Educator, Rachel Irwin, alongside a small team of High School Co-op students who design and run unique environmental education programs for Grades 4 - 6.
The programs are delivered in elementary schoolyards across Halton - It’s a field trip that comes to you! Nature’s NEAR aims to connect students and teachers to the natural wonders right at their doorstep and help them see their schoolyard in a whole new light!
