Coyote Nature School, in the village of Harrington, is a community-based program run in partnership with the Harrington & Area Community Association. Our meeting place is at Harrington Hall, a historic church which provides an ideal indoor program area, indoor washroom, facilities and inclement weather warm-up space. Our outdoor program areas are around the village and Mill Pond which encompasses forested areas, meadows, creek bed, and marsh. Our favourite quiet space is the beautiful heritage Grist Mill for historic learning, reflection, singing or journaling/art activities. Community members share their skills and talents through exciting theme programs.

Coyote Nature School, at Stoneridge Farm, offers a beautiful setting with a wealth of natural diversity. Our winding trail along the creek is home to many species of animals, plants and trees. There is so much to explore and unlimited hiking places just over the bridge and through the whispering pines. On those wintry days we can eat lunch around the campfire at Pine Haven and bird watch at the backyard feeders. For quieter reflection, journaling or art we may gather in the heated Curiousity Cabin. Farm animals become a focus for hands on learning such as horse grooming, chicken visits, and play times with the dogs and cat. The heritage barn hayloft is a favourite place to build forts, climb and gather with friends.
