The Earth Rangers School Assembly is a dynamic and interactive presentation for Grades 1-6 that leverages the shared, innate connection children of all backgrounds have to animals. Through the power of live animal demonstrations and positive, science-based information, our high-quality program educates students about the importance of protecting biodiversity while highlighting real conservation initiatives across Canada. The program is recreated each and every year, ensuring the inclusion of current and relevant topics and staying fresh and exciting for students and teachers.
