Education

Our professional interpreters present curriculum-linked environmental education programs. Students have fun learning in our outdoor "park classroom" with creative educators. We also offer these programs to youth groups in summer.  

Book your school program early to avoid disappointment.

We host school programs from the Learning Centre. This facility is big enough to accommodate large school groups. It's a great location to stage programs for the day.

If you can't come to a program here, we can bring the Cypress Hills to you through the Cypress Forest Explorers videoconference. There are also educational videoconferencing opportunities from other provincial parks.

More info on programming at Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park

We also offer interpretive programs for visitors to learn more about the Cypress Hills.
