School & Group Programs

Supported by GFL: Green for Life

Assiniboine Park Conservancy education programs connect people with nature and inspire them to be environmental stewards.

We offer a variety of curriculum-linked, interdisciplinary programs for students in Pre-K through Grade 12 at The Leaf (coming soon!), Assiniboine Park Zoo, and Assiniboine Park. Our early years programs encourage children to connect with the amazing diversity found in nature and progress into more action-based classes at the middle and senior years level.

All programs incorporate learning objectives in science with connections to arts, culture, language, social studies and more. Many programs include hands-on activities and different styles of learning are encouraged through story, music, verbal presentations, tours, and teamwork. Programs are available year-round and run rain, shine or snow! 

Please note, Leaf programs are sold out for May/June 2024.
