Engaging Youth

When children are connected to parks at an early age they form a lifelong relationship with nature. This not only helps with their own personal health and development but it also creates the future stewards of parks and natural resources.

In October 2007, 150 grade 5 students from Eastern Ontario participated in an archeological dig around a pioneer homestead at Murphys Point Provincial Park. Students sifted through 1m square plots looking for artifacts. Professional archeologists were on-site to help the students learn about their findings. A generous donation helped to make this special day possible.
