We are pleased to partner with the Calgary Catholic School District to offer our Tree Medicine Plant Walk as a complementary tool to the grade 7 curriculum. The CCSD will reimburse all schools who take part in this experience. Please contact your administration or this email for details: 

Although only the Tree Plant Medicine Walk qualifies for the CCSD subsidy, we recommend all grade 7 groups consider participating in the  Métis Artifacts Scavenger Hunt. This one-hour experience is a fun and educational add-on to our CSSD Plant Tree Medicine Walk. This is ideal when booking two or more groups for your Experience Métis field trip so all groups can remain engaged for your entire time with us.
