Environmental education and outdoor recreation has become increasingly important in today’s society to enhance the connection between people and the environment and to encourage healthy lifestyles. The Eagle Point – Blue Rapids Parks Council wants to help ensure Albertans, especially youth, are environmentally literate, engaged in environmental stewardship and contribute to a healthy, sustainable future.
The Eagle Point – Blue Rapids Parks Council offers a range of high quality environmental, experiential education programs targeted to teachers, students, and community organizations in Drayton Valley and Brazeau County. We are currently the only local organization providing curriculum-linked environmental education programs in the area. We’re excited about each opportunity we have to encourage youth and all citizens and visitors to be active outdoors and to connect with nature while respecting our local wild places.
The Parks Council has a program for every season and age group, from elementary to high school. Interpretive hikes with the Parks Council are available year round and include snowshoeing in the winter months. Our educational programs are not exclusive to school classes and are available to all community members and groups in Drayton Valley and Brazeau County.
