Gamiing Nature Centre is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to share the enjoyment and importance of living in harmony with nature by balancing human needs with the needs of our natural world, working together toward sustainable ecosystems and stewardship of our natural resources and heritage for our and future generations. We do this with inspirational and effective environmental programs for children and adults, schools and community groups. Our onsite and outreach school programs are linked into the Ontario Education Curriculum

Touch Table and Discovery Boxes
Learn about our natural history in a fun explorative way. Our Nature Interpreters come into your school to present a minimum of 4 touch table topics to your group. Students explore through each of the tables for 20 minute rotations. Each table is set up with artifacts and collections surrounding a specific topic. Topics may include: mammals, fish, birds, insects, amphibians & reptiles, habitat and adaptation, fur-feathers & skins, rocks and minerals, plants, wetlands, lifecycles and more.
Fur, Feathers, Scales and Skin
Using objects and artifacts students will be introduced to the different types of animal coverings. We will look at why and how they differ, what happens when the animal grows and special adaptations
Animals Have Class
Through hands-on investigation children learn about the similarities and differences between mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and fish. Identify and†classify animal groups by their appearance, growth and internal attributes.
Ribbon of Life
An interactive program introduces the concept of the ìribbon of lifeî; a highly productive ecosystem lining our waterways and shorelines. Children will learn about the importance of this area for wildlife habitat, as well as its function as a natural filter for pollutants and buffer against erosion.
