Friday, May 5 & Saturday May 6 at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area, Lincoln ON – Located just 70 minutes west of Toronto
DAY 1 – ECOLINKS ANNUAL CONFERENCE – Friday May 6th
Ecolinks is not your typical conference. Instead of sitting in a darkened room watching a PowerPoint presentation, the day is packed with hands-on, classroom-ready activities for teaching Ontario curriculum through an environmental lens. Not only is the day a lot of fun, you’ll return to your school with new activities and skills for teaching environmental education.
Choose from a variety of interactive workshops:
- Citizen science
- Vermicomposting and growing sprouts
- School gardens and seed libraries
- Environmental problem solving with STEM learning
- Consumerism and social justice
- Hydroponics in the classroom
- The impacts of the fashion industry
- Monitoring water quality with benthic macro-invertebrates
- and more!
Conference fee of $100 includes refreshments, lunch, and OSEE membership for the 2017-2018 year.
Post-conference wine tasting, food, and networking.
Join us after the conference at Featherstone Estate Winery & Vineyard for their $5 wine tasting – only a 2 minute drive from Ball’s Falls!
Visit another winery or two before meeting at the Hippocrates’ Daughter in Grimsby at 6:30 PM (vegan & gluten free friendly).
