EcoSuperior Summer Day Camp


As summer comes to end, we would like to thank all of our community partners that make EcoSuperior's Summer Day Camp a huge success!  Our days are packed full of insect hunting, dip netting in the McIntyre River, science experiments and natural play.  We have also been very fortunate to partner with a number of wonder community organizations that visit us at the Central Natural Environment Gardens and share their love of nature, the outdoors and science!  


Let’s Talk Science, Science North, the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority, Metis Nation of Ontario Youth Group, Ministry of Northern Development and Mines, St. John Ambulance, Ontario Nature, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters & the Ontario Invasive Species Program, Safe Cycle Thunder Bay and the Thunder Bay Beekeepers Association.

A another BIG THANK YOU to KASPER BUSSING - our field trips would not have been possible without your great service and generosity - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
