Brooksdale,

laying a foundation
for creation care

Education Programs

For children and youth, the Brooksdale Environmental Centre offers place-based learning experiences that get kids up close and personal with the natural world. Whether they’re dipping nets into ponds, pulling carrots from the garden, or peering through binoculars, participants come away with a greater appreciation and understanding of the ecosystem in which they live.

For adults, the Brooksdale staff offer workshops and teaching sessions both at our Centre and in the wider community on the theological foundations for creation care.

When You’re Here

All centre-based programs occur outdoors and are conducted rain or shine. Please come prepared with suitable rainwear and rubber boots. Parent drivers and helpers are encouraged to participate in activities and to help supervise students.
