Kananaskis Country has been offering award-winning education programs for over 30 years. We strive to inform, inspire and involve Albertans to increase their understanding of, respect for and connection to the natural world. Kananaskis Country is recognized provincially and nationally as a leader in environmental education.
Education programs offered in Kananaskis country reflect and support Alberta Park’s Topics and Themes for Youth Engagement. All programs are developed to provide an enriched, experiential learning experience that recognizes a variety of world views while utilizing Alberta’s Park system as an authentic learning landscape. This is reflected in the graphic below.
Students, teachers, parent volunteers and the public participate in education programs offered by Kananaskis Country educators in many different ways.
We're committed to ensuring our programs are inclusive. Our education programs can be modified for the full participation of all Albertans regardless of age, ability, language, income, culture or background.
Another way to learn about Alberta's provincial parks is through educational videoconferences offered from some parks.
