Living Winter (for priority schools)

Toronto Botanical Garden provides a free full-day program, a transportation subsidy of $200, and morning snacks to grade four students from priority high-needs schools from November to February. Curriculum-linked habitat programs highlight immersion and hands-on learning through outdoor explorations. Students will dissect owl pellets, and hand-feed chickadees and learn how animals adapt to survive in the winter.

This program is made possible by The Leonard and Gabryela Osin Foundation and the Kinnear Foundation.
