Toronto and Region Conservation has a strong role to play in informing the public of the importance of cultural resources found in the environment; these include field schools, public archaeology, in-class programs, presentations and artifact displays.
TRCA’s Archaeology department actively participates in informing the public of the importance of respectful stewardship of the cultural resources found in our environment. A few of the methods we use to educate include an annual Archaeological Field School for high school students and a pilot program for cultural heritage stewards.
The 40th season of Boyd Archaeological Field School takes place from July 14 – 30, 2017 at the Claremont Field Centre in Pickering, Ontario, Canada. Students can earn an Ontario High School Credit in two weeks, doing real archaeology.
The Boyd Archaeological Field School is operated by Toronto and Region Conservation under the sponsorship of the York Region District School Board.
