Surrey Nature Centre - Sammy the Salamander

In-person School Programs

In-person, on-site programs are 90 minutes in duration and cost $109 per class (30 students maximum). 

Forest Foundations (Kindergarten - Grade 6)

 $109 per session

Join a Nature Centre program leader in the heart of Green Timbers to explore how different parts of trees play different roles in creating strong, healthy organisms capable of building a forest. We will explore leaves, roots, and trunks using games, experiments and explorations that help us to understand how trees, like us, have different parts (organs) that allow them to acquire what they need to survive! Students will leave understanding trees more deeply and appreciating them as an integral part of a healthy forest ecosystem and planet.  Information Sheet


Shelter Building (Kindergarten - Grade 12)

 $109 per session

Join a Nature Centre program leader as they introduce your students to the urban forest where they will use provided tools and instructed techniques to create a wilderness shelter. After learning the basics, students will be divided into small groups to overcome a challenge based on their grade level. The program ends with an informal presentation where we’ll visit each shelter creation to witness the design and rationale behind them. Programs are held outside, rain or shine. Information Sheet
