- HISTORY – First Nations oral history & past events
- GEOGRAPHY – How the physical landscape shaped life along the river and relations with other nations
- SCIENCE – Naturally diverse ecology that surrounds the Humber River Valley
- PHYSICAL EDUCATION – Gentle outdoor activity in beautiful surroundings
- CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT – Enhancing self-actualization, confidence, and social & emotional well being
“As a parent, Redwing Institute’s Culture & Nature Discovery Walk experience was a wonderful introduction to Toronto’s Heritage. Their use of all the senses to teach and engage the children in learning from the land was phenomenal. The kids talked about their experience for weeks afterwards. There is something magical about learning outside in nature.”
– Audra Dixon, mother of two children who attend private school in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The Culture & Nature Discovery Walk meets many of the Ontario Curriculum requirements including Social Studies, History, Geography, Science and Health & Physical Education as well as Character Development, the skills that build confidence, emotional intelligence and resilience in children for life success. We invite you to learn more about the Culture & Nature Discovery Walk.

A wonderful and enriching experience for our Fourth Grade students!
“This was more than your average nature walk. Redwing Institute provided multiple rich experiential learning activities and lead discussions on the connections between the history of the land and the cultures and indigenous peoples that have called the Humber Valley home over the centuries. Our students had a ton of fun and came away with a greater appreciation of the cultural heritage and natural beauty of a gorgeous area right in Toronto!”
– Sloan Crawford, Voice Integrative School, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
