Program Activities

Since 1967, the interest in and use of the conservation area to provide environmental education programs for school groups and others has dramatically grown. At the conservation area, we offer a wide variety of outdoor interpretive subjects, suitable for all grade levels. We work with thousands of students and their teachers every year from the Sudbury area; from towns around northeastern Ontario, and from towns and cities around southern Ontario.

Every year children from around the Sudbury region can experience the wilds at Lake Laurentian by participating in "Camp Bitobig", our conservation day camp. The camp gives children an appreciation of our natural environment and an opportunity to participate in many outdoor activities. We must remember that our children will be the environmentalists of tomorrow.

The Lake Laurentian Conservation Area has something for everyone. Providing environmental education for over 40 years, is only one of the many benefits this facility provides. Imagine what would have happened to this land had it not been for the vision and determination of decision-makers of the day to see this scenic natural area protected for future generations.
