The evidence has made it abundantly clear — spending time in nature is good for us, from the mental and physical health benefits, to improved children and youths’ development and learning.
Nature Canada’s NatureHood program is founded on society’s growing disconnect from nature, and an understanding of the numerous complex barriers to accessing nature. The goal of our NatureHood program is to connect urban residents, particularly young people and their families, to nearby nature.
We’ve created Nature HomeSchool to compile a library of diverse resources to help educators, caregivers, guardians, community leaders, and learners learn and connect to nature!

Prompted by the current COVID-19 pandemic, and an increase in outdoor learning, and homeschooling parents, guardians, and caretakers, Nature Canada’s NatureHood team developed Nature HomeSchool – a collection of resources for children, youth, parents, and educators of all kinds. These nature themed and nature-based resources come from our NatureHood regional partners. This resource hub is a living library of videos, downloadable activities, teaching slide decks, and more.
We’ll be releasing more resources periodically!
