Experience nature in many ways in the outdoor classroom
Your Nature Passport is a program designed to encourage you to become more engaged in your education in ECE, ECAS or CICE at Humber College. Through this program you will learn through a variety of experiences and develop skills in nature education. The traditional indoor classroom offers many learning experiences relating to the nature-human connection. When you seek out experiences outside or in a variety of places in the community, the learning opportunities exponentially increase.
