The CCCA is proud to present and host the 16th Annual (and 2nd Virtual) Marsh Quest!
Marsh Quest is a five-day festival in which students visit the Herb Kebbel Marsh at the Yarmouth Natural Heritage Area just East of Sparta, Ontario. Typically 4 or 5 classes attend the festival each day and students take part in 10 stations of interactive learning. They come away from the festival with a better understanding of what a marsh is, why wetlands are important to us, how many different living things interact together in these spaces and how we can help protect them and nature in general!
The stations are run by students in the Environmental Leadership Program at East Elgin Secondary School with the assistance of their teacher Duncan Sinclair, Emily “Ranger Em” Febrey, local expert Ron Casier, the Catfish Creek Conservation Authority, and TVDSB Environmental Educators from the Jaffa School.
The ELP students have gone above and beyond in finding ways to make their stations virtual yet personal and adding ways in which students can take the learning further back at school or at home. Thanks to Connor Riley for editing the video.
