SNC Launching Live Educational Video Series to Engage with Families at Home


SNC Launching Live Educational Video Series to Engage with Families at Home

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 6 – Natural Capital, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: South Nation Conservation (SNC)

Timeline for Completion: Start May 7 for month of May

Objective:

Beginning May 7th, South Nation Conservation (SNC) will be live streaming family-friendly educational videos on Facebook every Thursday at 1:00 pm as part of a new series called Nature at Home.

The weekly videos streamed over Facebook Live will see the Conservation Authority bring its environmental outreach offerings onto smartphones and in living rooms across Eastern Ontario as people continue to stay home due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Nature at Home’s first episode, May 7th at 1:00 pm, will feature a guided walk through the Oschmann Forest Conservation Area in North Dundas, home of SNC’s flagship Maple Syrup Education Program. Viewers will learn about the history of maple syrup production and forest ecology while being guided along the Forest’s interpretive trail from home.

The rest of Nature at Home’s May lineup will bring viewers to various locations across SNC’s 4,441 square-kilometer jurisdiction to learn about tree planting, water control structures, and invasive species to coincide with National Invasive Species Awareness Week later next month.

To tune in, people are encouraged to “Like” SNC on Facebook prior to May 7th at www.facebook.com/SouthNationConservation. The videos will be live streamed directly from
SNC’s Facebook page every week.
