Teaching children positive eco-habits
The program is organized around monthly themes, which allow the participants to focus on specific eco-actions.
Who are the Little Sprouts?
The Little Sprouts Eco-Club was founded in 2015 by Muskoka Conservancy board member, Christina Hunter and has been growing ever since!This club educates and engages children ages 4-8 (approximately), by teaching them positive eco-habits. The program is organized around monthly themes, which allow the participants to focus on specific eco-actions. Examples of monthly themes include water conservation, composting, and pollinators. Each month includes a meeting in either Bracebridge or Gravenhurst and an outing geared toward the theme.
How does it work?
A monthly meeting is organized to set up the tasks and activities children can perform related to their eco-theme. By completing the tasks, the children receive stickers to fill their personal certificates. There are also field trip outings and special days of action when the whole group participates together to receive a sticker.
Can my children and I join the group?
Of course! We will be very happy to count more Little Sprouts in Muskoka! For more information, please connect with the group through Facebook "Little Sprouts Eco-club in Muskoka" or email Christina: chunter @ muskokaconservancy.org.
