General Selection Criteria

In view of the popularity of certain project proposals and the number of spaces, selection criteria have been retained:

  • A proportional representation of the targeted schools of the two English-language school boards in Montréal as a priority, and of the three French-language school service centers depending on the spaces available
  • A representation of the cycles
  • The participation of the individual in other offers of artistic and cultural mediation (current school year)

Students will discover the transformative world of the pond during the spring. The students will have an unforgettable experience of sampling life in a beautiful natural pond at the Morgan Arboretum, accompanied by a seasoned naturalist and guide. As the children dip their nets, many discoveries will be made about the creatures who start their lives in the water of the pond but who will then leave the pond for the forest or the field. These true transformers will awaken in your students a sense of wonderment and connection about the natural world and will offer you a myriad of learning possibilities.

This offer includes an experimentation that allows participants to reinvest the contents in the targeted program components:

  • Broad Areas of Learning: Environmental Awareness and Consumer Rights and Responsibilities, Health and Well-Being
  • Subject Area: Science and Technology


  • Project planning activity for targeted personnel (May 17th, 9:30 am to 2:30 pm, Morgan Arboretum, in-person)
    Teachers will participate in a mandatory preparation/professional development day, led by Science specialist, Kathleen Usher.
  • Outing dates: May 29th to June 2nd
  • Time: 9:30am to 1:30pm (for early-start schools) 10:00am to 2:00pm (for late-start schools)
  • Location: Morgan Arboretum, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue
