Advanced Teacher Training

Due to the evolving COVID19 situation in Ontario, Ecosource will be postponing Day 2 of Module 2 (Nature Play & Fostering Outdoor Connection) and Day 1 & 2 of Module 3 (Water, Green Infrastructure & Water-Based Learning) of our Teacher Education Program until further notice. We appreciate your understanding as we come to this decision with the aim of protecting the health of our program participants and staff.
