School Field Trips: The Living Classroom

Transform your classroom learning into a unique experience in Elk Island National Park. Join a Parks Canada interpreter and watch the Alberta school curriculum come to life in a living classroom.

Elk Island National Park offers students an opportunity to experience learning in a living classroom. Students connect with their natural world and engage Alberta’s educational curriculum in a new and fascinating way through hands-on activities.
