students participate in TRCA Aquatic Plants Program

In the winter, each participating class receives kits to grow native plants in the classroom. In the spring, schools travel to a local wetland to transplant their plants and participate in a half-day experience, learning about the important roles native plant species play in improving local biodiversity.

Participants rotate through unique educational stations throughout their visit.

Sign up for this program before the end of February. An in-class planting demonstration will occur in March or April to educate students on how to plant and care for their plants. Students will continue to care for the plants until their planting day in May or June.

Preparation:
It is the teachers’ responsibility to arrange and cover costs associated with transportation to the planting site; Students must bring a full water bottle, hat, sunscreen and wear clothing that can get dirty.
