One of our long term visions at Wesley Clover Parks is to provide education opportunities to help people from all walks of life to learn more about our natural and sustainable environment. Every aspect of Wesley Clover Parks holds a chance to learn something new!
Ottawa Forest and Nature School
The Ottawa Forest and Nature School offers children, families and their communities inclusive, safe and supported, opportunities to learn and form connections to the land, each other, and themselves through child-centred, interest-led play in Ottawa’s urban nature continuum- from forests to parks, meadows to mud-puddles.

The Child and Nature Alliance of Canada (CNAC) supports individuals and organizations across sectors to incorporate nature-based play and learning into their work. Whether you are an educator interested in starting your own Forest and Nature School or the leader of an organization looking to equip your staff with tools to support risky play, they have a professional learning opportunity for you!
The Horsemanship Program is geared toward students who have little to no experience with horses. In these lessons, students will learn about basic horse behaviour, parts of the horse, the equipment needed to groom and tack up, and how to lead their horses to the ring and mount.
Ticks are most often-found in forests and wooded areas but they can also live in shrubs, tall grass and leaves. By taking precautions you can enjoy the great outdoors!
