CPAWS NB offers an entertaining and informative program for school children in New Brunswick, where they are taught about the nature around us and why we need to protect it.
The goals of this program are to educate children about natural habitats and protected areas in our province and to encourage responsible action in nature.
Includes a brief overview of natural area and habitat concepts, followed by entertaining and interactive hands-on activities. The general theme is promoting responsible behaviour in nature and is consistent with curriculum outcomes for these grades.
We hope you will consider scheduling a "Watch Your Paws" session for your classroom and are excited about sharing our love of nature with your students! To book a presentation for your school, class or youth group, contact us.
Take the Watch Your Paws Challenge and tell us how you’re helping nature in New Brunswick!
