Building on a long history of connecting children with nature

Generations of students have learned about nature on Hamilton’s beautiful and diverse conservation lands.

From 1970 to 1996, over 300,000 students visited HCA education classes with funding from the provincial government. The program was cut in the late 1990s and re-established with grant funding and donations in spring of 2002. Today it is operated out of the Dundas Valley and hosts an average of 9,000 students per year.
