Gr. 6/7 Creatures of Habitat Program

In 2009, Peninsula Streams Society, in partnership with a team of concerned community members, created an environmental education program for Gr. 6 students.  We called it “Creatures of Habitat – Days of Action” to reflect the program’s emphasis on proactivity in the face of our environmental challenges.  Every year since, we have brought a “Day of Action” to middle schools all over the Peninsula. With our team of volunteers, workshop providers and theatre crew, we engage 5-700 Gr.
