Bring conservation education into your classroom. Experience leading-edge distance learning programming developed and delivered by experts from Ducks Unlimited Canada.
Wetland Centres of Excellence combine learning and leadership. They are a national network of schools and community partners that engages students in wetland conservation through action projects, student-to-student mentored field trips and outreach in their communities.
The Wetland Heroes program recognizes motivated young people who support wetland conservation through their own projects and initiatives. We are inspired by these young change-makers, and we celebrate hundreds of them across the country.
Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is forming its first-ever Youth Advisory Council to learn from young Canadians’ perspective. Members will be provided unprecedented opportunities to share their perspectives on the future of conservation, what role they want to play and how DUC can move their vision forward.
DUC Interpretive Centres
Educators, pupils and people of all ages can connect with the wonders of nature through DUC’s Interpretive Centres.
Resources for educators
DUC also offers fun activities for wetland educators and pupils. Which one are you?
Wetland educators come in all forms, from teachers developing lesson plans, to nature interpreters and camp staff, to parents introducing their kids to the wild side of life.
Wetland pupils are young people with a thirst for knowledge and conservation action. What better way to quench that thirst than with wetlands?
Whatever type of educator or pupil you are, our Wetland Activities will help you learn from wetlands, and to return the favour by taking action on their behalf.
