Grand River Conservation Authority

The Grand River Conservation Authority operates four Nature Centres in the Grand River watershed. Each year, the centres provide environmental and outdoor education programs to over 50,000 children from school classes, community youth organizations and family groups.

The goals of these programs are to provide children with hands-on activities that teach global environmental concepts, create an appreciation for the environment, and in the long term increase public support for local conservation work.

On weekdays during the school year, the GRCA works directly with four of the six major watershed school boards, delivering curriculum-based outdoor education to over 40,000 students.

The Centres are used evenings and weekends by organized community youth groups for environmental programming (e.g. conservation badge work for Cubs, Scouts, Guides, Brownies), as well as family-oriented Special Event programming.
