Educational and Interpretive Programs
Environmental & Cultural Programs
This is a ‘sample’ of the great educational programs available. Contact the Park office at (306) 662-5411 for ‘new’ program information.
Your class can experience the unique Geology, Pine Forests, Wildlife, and Cultural history of the Cypress Hills through educational and exciting spring, fall or winter outings in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, Saskatchewan. Programs use the ‘inquiry-based learning process’ to enhance Core Curriculum studies. Park interpreters use various methods allowing students to investigate and learn through hands-on activities. Students will discover the qualities that make the Cypress Hills’ ecosystems and cultural diversity unique.
The spring programs are one and one-half to two hours in length, which includes travel time to and from trails and program areas. Your own transportation is required for these.
Fall and winter programs are limited, please call for more information.
$1.00 per student per program is required to cover program costs (subject to change without notice). Teachers and Chaperones are required to participate in all programs at no charge.
‘Leave No Trace’ Program
All class bookings are required to complete a ‘Pre-trip Activity’ to ensure they ‘Leave No Trace’ when they leave the park. Information will be provided upon booking.
Geology, Forestry, Riparian and Aquatic, Guided Hikes, Aboriginal, GPS and Compass, Astronomy and more.
Be prepared: What To Bring
Weather is unpredictable in the Cypress Hills. Cold or damp students make an unpleasant class trip. Each student and adult should bring a change of clothing for wet conditions, rubber boots, rain gear, cold weather jacket (even a heavy winter parka), mitts, hat, water bottle, sunscreen, bug repellent, and a ground sheet/tarp if camping. Staff are prepared to lead programs rain or shine.
Each program time slot is limited to 15 to 20 students per staff-guided program, unless otherwise indicated. Park interpreters can handle up to 3 programs at one time allowing large class sizes to be divided into groups. Self-guided programs are available for teachers to lead.
Programs run Monday – Friday at 9:00am, 10:30am, 1:30pm, and 3:00pm. Mondays are all self-use programs.
