Discover Our Wetland Centres of Excellence!

Nature is a powerful teacher. It ignites curiosity and confidence within young people.

Last year alone we engaged with 4,900 students across Canada! DUC believes these youth can change the world—and we know many already are. Through our award-winning education programs, we encourage these young minds to explore and protect our favourite outdoor classrooms; wetlands.

Wetlands are Essential

Wetlands are an important nature-based solution to climate change and the key to ensuring a healthier future for our youth.

Wetlands capture and store carbon, provide us with clean drinking water, cool our cities, and help mitigate the impacts of droughts and floods. They also serve as outdoor classrooms that spark joy and curiosity in young people across the country.
