Description

Nature Days for Homeschoolers

Join us for a day of learning and exploring the natural world at the Tiffin Centre - all ages welcome!

Friday February 2nd 2018- Groundhog Day

Come celebrate Groundhog Day with us!

Learn all about the different kinds of animals that hibernate, and which ones don't. You might be surprised!

Take a hike around Tiffin on our snowshoes to see which tracks you can see, to discover who is not sleeping.

While the snow lasts, an optional kick-sled around the ponds and group campground are also available for those with the stamina to do so. Younger children can be pushed while they sit on the kicksled.

FAQs

Is a paper ticket required for this event?

No, a paper ticket is not necessary!

What is the refund policy?

Refunds can be issued until the close of registration. No refunds will be issued after this date.

Is there any food for purchase at the Tiffin Centre?

For those eating lunch at the Tiffin Centre, please note that there is no food available here for purchase. We also ask participants to be mindful of our litterless lunch policy and deposit any food-related garbage or recycling off-site (donations to our compost, however, are always appreciated!). Water fountains are available to fill up re-useable water bottles.

Do I need to accompany my (teenaged) children to this event?

We do require that all children have an adult supervisor on-site and participating in our programs in case of unforeseen incidents (sickness, injury, etc.). If you would like to assign supervision of your children to another adult who will be participating, that would be fine. We simply ask that they be registered with the individual who has accepted this responsibility.

What if it rains or snows?

All of our programs run rain, snow or shine. Please come prepared for outdoor activity and dress appropriately for the weather.

Can I bring my dog to this event?

While leashed dogs are allowed on NVCA trails, we ask that they do not accompany you during programming times.

My friends will also be attending this event. Can we request to be placed in the same group/class?

Due to the number of participants and the nature of our programs, we can not guarantee placement with other registrants.
