The LSLBO is committed to delivering high-quality, hands-on education programs for students and members of the general public. We work closely with our education partners, the Lesser Slave Forest Education Society and Alberta Parks  to deliver the majority of our education programs at the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation and the LSLBO.

Our highlight school programs include a trip to the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory to meet our scientists.
