Environmental Studies

Discover unique ecosystems and explore environmental sustainability.

Curriculum Connections

EduTravel is proud to offer a variety of trips that focus on environmental studies. By taking students to unique locations thriving in an abundance of nature, students have the opportunity to learn from nature itself and see the direct connection and impacts that humans have on the environment. Through interactive tours at botanical gardens, environmental centers, and hikes through complete natural habitats, our itinerary will provide students with knowledge about the environment and the opportunity to think critically about what they are learning and make connections to their lives. Our Tour Directors will encourage students to reflect on each day’s experiences and prompt them to think about how they can use their new knowledge to make a positive impact back home.

Our Environmental Studies destinations include local spots in Toronto like the Brickworks or Ripley’s Aquarium, or the Butterfly Conservatory and a hike down into the Niagara Gorge to discover Canadian flora and fauna in Niagara Falls. Travel further to Vancouver – Canada’s nature capital! Discover Canada’s oldest university botanic garden at the University of British Columbia, walk through the trees at the Capilano Suspension Bridge, or visit the Stanley Park Ecology Society. If you’re feeling even more adventurous… Fiji, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, or Ecuador may be the perfect place for you to discover lush landscapes, vibrant coral reefs, beautiful beaches, National parks, and an abundance of biodiversity.
