Wild Roots is proud to announce our pilot BEACH and Forest School is now open for registration! Our Beach School is, put simply, Forest School on the beach at Petrie Island. Children will learn about the environment and the amazing processes on our river and wetlands, safely alongside certified Forest School Practitioners. Children will be able to observe turtles basking in the sunshine, watch the great blue heron take flight and learn about the diverse plant life on the island. This season, we are offering half-day programs in May and June at Petrie Island for children ages 4-8. Please download our registration package on our website and send the completed forms to wildrootsnatureandforestschool@gmail.com to secure your spot.
