TOMMY THOMPSON PARK: Beyond the Park Programs
For school or community groups who would love to learn about environmental and nature-themed topics, but can’t make it to Tommy Thompson Park, we will send a Tommy Thompson Park instructor to your school or centre.

Learn about microplastics, a significant environmental concern affecting aquatic ecosystems across the globe.

Participants will analyze terrestrial samples from Tommy Thompson Park and aquatic samples from the Toronto harbour. Through an in-depth presentation and hands-on exploration, participants will gain an appreciation of the impacts of our daily plastics use and discuss approaches to being part of the solution.

Microscopes and sediment sorting sieves provided.

Ages 14 and up
