At Home in High Park- Eagles

Homeschooling Program for 12-16 year olds

An extension of the At Home in High Park program, the “Eagles” group will delve deeper into the study of nature by combining outdoor exploration with challenging academic work that helps us better understand our natural observations. An emphasis will be put on integrating nature study with oral and written language skills, mathematics, science, art and geography. Homework will be assigned and participants will be responsible for it’s completion. Participants will develop their academic, nature knowledge and leadership skills in a challenging, supportive, team environment.

Participants will be:

  • Working independently and collectively to develop a 1-hour interpretive nature hike to be delivered as a culminating project on a Saturday afternoon.

  • Nature journaling

  • Creating a cumulative species list for the season

  • Posting observations using iNaturalist

  • Stewardship projects within OURSpace

Materials required:

  • 1 book to be used as a nature journal (can be made or bought)

Cost:

$275 for 10 meetings (15% discount for additional siblings)

Meetings:

Every Monday, 1-3:30pm from Jan. 8-Mar.19 with no meeting on Feb. 19 (due to Family Day)
