Nature's Craft Corner GROWE


Introduction (5 minutes) 

We will meet with the clients and do introductions. We will also go over our plans for how the program will run. 

Nature Talk (20 minutes)

The Nature Talk will be based on a nature theme that we have chosen for our craft. We will include; characteristics, status, habitat, placement in the food chain, diet and human roles in their populations. 

Wild Walk (30 minutes) 

Next, we will do a quick safety talk and then head out on our hike. We will make stops to discuss topics that are related to our nature theme. For example, if the nature theme was Giraffes we would stop to talk about how their long necks can reach high for the leaves on the trees and how their camouflage works. 

Craft Time (30 minutes)

After the walk we will head back to do our craft 

Conclusion/Good Byes (5 minutes) 

We will wrap up our program by asking the clients for any comments or feedback they would like to share. Lastly, we will say our good byes.


 Grand River Wilderness Outdoor Education is the passion of Jessica McGregor and Tara Carpenter... "Get to Know Them".

Risk Management: 

Our guides are highly trained, skilled and experienced in leading clients in the outdoors with the completion of many pertinent diplomas, certificates, training, and awards. 

  • We must stay together as a group as much as possible but if you are to ever go off anywhere by yourself we will have a buddy system that children will always follow.

  • No child is to go anywhere by themselves. Always leave space between you and the person in front of you when hiking in the bush.

  • Be aware of ticks and protect yourself by tucking your socks into your pants, checking your pant legs on a regular bases, and stay on the trails.

  • Poison Ivy is a three leaved plant that can cause severe reactions in some people. Stay clear of any three leaved plants by staying on the trails. Never pick any fauna without the guide’s instructions.

  • Allergies, asthma and all other medical conditions will be discussed and medications organized.

  • Always stay hydrated by drinking lots of water no matter what the weather conditions.

  • Always be aware of tripping hazards such as rock, sticks, logs, and slippery conditions on and off the trails.  



Always dress for the weather conditions.  

Dressing in layers is always a good idea since you can always take layers off along the way.  

Winter can be cold and damp so we recommend wearing: 

Undershirt, sweater, wool socks, snow pants, long underwear, scarf, buff, balaclava, toque, mitten/gloves, winter boots, and down filled winter coat/parka, waterproof outer shell.
