Adult Education Programs

Cataraqui Conservation offers a range of outdoor and environmental education programs for adult learners. All of our programs are English as a Second Language (ESL) friendly. Programs are geared towards different language ability levels that introduce new vocabulary, concepts and connections to nature. We engage adult learners at various levels to gain a greater understanding of conservation and nature.
