"In the 35 years I have worked for Etobicoke/TDSB I have attended the EFSC as many times as possible. I have enjoyed and participated in numerous programs in all seasons and all weather. BUT today’s visit to the pond was a first for me and definitely the best. I am not "outdoorsy" in the least but working with this most enjoyable class and witnessing their obvious joy and delight in their discoveries was a highlight for me especially since it is my last visit to the EFSC in my teaching career."

About Our Programs

Current programs offered at the Field Studies Centre are listed under each grade. Contact us directly, if you are interested in piloting a unique unit OR in altering an existing program to meet the specific needs of your class. The staff at the Field Studies Centre make every effort to provide your class with a stimulating outdoor experience.


Our programs are conducted in rain or shine. At EFSC, we check and monitor weather conditions regularly to ensure that all necessary precautions are made. Should we experience extreme weather conditions, we will offer participants appropriate outdoor clothing, and modify the program as necessary in consultation with you. In extreme cases, we will schedule an alternate date (dependent on availability).
