Our concept is to provide a facility and curriculum where school and youth groups could enjoy a day in a unique environment learning about various natural sciences. Our 2 – 10’ X 10’ solar powered buildings provide the perfect laboratories for the participants to do a multitude of activities in either a winter or a summer setting.
Winter activities on Buffalo Pound Lake include:
- Water quality and oxygen level testing
- Plankton netting and studying under the microscope
- Lake bed dredge sampling
- Dissection of a fish and aging of the same with scale staining
- Fish physiology
- Ecosystems and the environment
- Watching the underwater activities on our aquaview systems
- All the while fishing and much more!
Summer activities, which will revolve around Nicole Flats Marsh at Buffalo Pound Lake, include:
- Water quality and oxygen testing
- Collecting water samples and insects for microscope study
- Comprehensive plant and animal identification
- Waterfowl identification
- Marsh ecosystems and the environment
- Plus much more!
Our curriculums are designed to accommodate grades 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, and we are expecting to have “graduated” 500 students in our winter program this year, and 1800-2000 in our summer program.
We feel that this program allows us an excellent opportunity to not only educate our province’s youth in the great outdoors and natural sciences, but also allows us to explain the roles played by the hunters and anglers in the conservation, enhancement, and protection of our waterways, forests, and fields.
