The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation (RVCF) is giving students from disadvantaged classes, access to its outdoor education programs, during the 2019-2020 school year. As part of the initiative, tuition and transportation costs will be covered for all 12 participating schools from the city of Ottawa.
More than 10,000 elementary and secondary school students from all over are welcomed every year to the Outdoor Education programs at Baxter and Foley Mountain conservation areas. During that time, students attend sessions taught by certified teachers and get to experience nature while learning about science and conservation.https://www.ottawamatters.com/local-news/the-rideau-valley-conservation-foundation-gives-low-income-students-chance-to-discover-nature-1519934
