T’is the season to book your event early November 25th, 2013

Once again the white stuff is back,  and if you drive by the TCDC in the next few days you will notice that the facilities have been removed from the grounds for the  season.  This doesn’t mean that you can’t still book an event or school outing.  If you are interested in holding an event at the TCDC grounds over the winter season, we ask that you book it at least 2 weeks in advance so that the snow can be removed from the driveway and bus loop. Have a great holiday season and stay safe!


Kick-Off Celebration A Success October 11th, 2013

A big thank you goes out to everyone involved with yesterdays grand opening event at the TCDC. The day was a success with amazing weather and a number of school groups, political representatives, and everyone involved with the creation of the TCDC coming out to experience this outdoor classroom. Everyone who attended had the chance to experience various ecosystem stations, a BBQ lunch, and a ribbon cutting ceremony.

It is exciting to see how the TCDC has transformed.


For those of you who did not get to experience the outdoor classroom, but are interested in taking your class out to the TCDC please contact the SRRCD office for bookings.

Have a great day!

Summer vacation is over, but that doesn’t mean that school can’t be FUN! September 9th, 2013

It’s that time of year again, classrooms filling with the buzz of what happened over the summer holidays, but the fun doesn’t have to end with summer.  Teachers remember that the outdoor classroom at the Tourond Creek Discovery Center is open and waiting for your class.  On October 10, 2013  there will be the grand-opening celebration at the TCDC officially introducing to the public as an outdoor classroom. (TCDC Grand-Opening Invitation)

Contact the SRRCD Office to RSVP to the event, or for bookings and too have your class added to the calendar tab.

If you are looking for an alternative option to the outdoor classroom, you can get involved with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. The SRRCD is looking for teachers, students, and willing homeowners to organize and take part in cleaning up our shorelines in the local watersheds the week of September 23, 2013 until September 26, 2013.  

The following are the links for the three locations chosen by the SRRCD:

In St Anne on the Seine River: http://www.shorelinecleanup.ca/en/og/use-code/433FB3-94714

On the Tourond Creek: http://www.shorelinecleanup.ca/en/og/use-code/2C4A15-93171

In Lorette on the Seine River: http://www.shorelinecleanup.ca/en/og/use-code/CF878B-93907

The dates, times, and locations are flexible, as we would like to pass the coordination of the event over to other individuals to take care of (if possible).  If you are interested in more clean-up sites this could also be arranged, as the SRRCD does care for the Seine River, Rat River, Marsh River, Manning Canal, Tourond Creek, Fish Creek and Joubert Creek.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact the SRRCD Interim District Manager, Jodi Goerzen, via email (manager@srrcd.ca) or phone (204-424-5845 ext 1).

Have a great school year!

Karina 🙂
