Da Vinci program

We have hosted amazing groups of highschool students here at The Arboretum! They are part of the da Vinci Arts and Science Environmental Leadership Program which is a wonderful opportunity for grade 11 students in the Upper Grand District School Board. The students and their teachers spent one whole semester (September to January) at our JC Taylor Nature Centre, earning 4 different grade 11 credits as well as running a creative program called Eco-Artists for grade 4 students. The daVinci program was discontinued during the pandemic.

the Da Vinci program includes arts and crafts, music, hikes, ecology, group presentations and games
