Education

Covid-19: the Society is working to identify alternative formats for spring programs that will help support students, parents and teachers if schools remained closed for the rest of the school year.... 

(Note: any school that has already paid for a spring field-trip or indoor program will be sent a full refund if school closures continue until July. There is no need to apply - we will arrange the refund with your school secretary.)

The Weaselhead/Glenmore Park Preservation Society offers both outdoor field trips and in-school programs to schools and other organised groups.  Customised programs also available (details at foot of page)...

 

IN-SCHOOL PROGRAMS - AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR:

Accommodating participants ranging in age from young children to senior citizens, allow the Weaselhead Naturalists to enrich your understanding and connection to Nature.
