Aquatic Systems

Looking at your findingsCome participate in a different perspective of an aquatic environment. Haliburton Forest has over 450 wetlands. Students will discover one of these wetlands by a short hike through the forest and venturing over a boardwalk. Students will actively learn about different vertebrates and invertebrates within a wetland ecosystems.

Fortunately enough, Haliburton Forest has many insects, birds, animals, and plants, all contributing to its biodiversity, and waiting to be found. Our skilled staff will provide instruction how to dip the nets, assistance to sort through their findings, and create insight for students. This program will be designed to suit the needs of all ages and educational requirements. This experiential learning process is something a student will never forget.
