Education Programs

The Otonabee Region Conservation Authority (Otonabee Conservation) delivers a variety of environmental education programs, for students and lifelong learners of all ages. Our goal is to engage participants in programs that explore and examine dynamic watersheds, water quality, wildlife habitat, and how activities on the landscape affect ecosystem health and function.

Otonabee Conservation staff work with local teachers, organizations, and service clubs to develop and deliver programs that are tailored to the specific needs of the group. These educational sessions range from a brief presentation to a full day session, either in-class or at a conservation project site. Among our educational programs provided is:

  • Spring Water Awareness
  • Yellow Fish Road
  • Be a Water Steward
  • Watersheds and Water Quality
  • Peterborough Children’s Water Festival
