Brightwater Eco Center

Saskatoon, SK

The Brightwater Science, Environmental and Indigenous Learning Centre provides unique land-based programming for middle years and high school students attending Saskatoon Public Schools. Brightwater programming is delivered through the integration of a variety of curricular subject areas and is based on the ecological knowledge of native prairie landscapes and honours Indigenous perspectives, content and ceremonies.​​​ Brightwater provides an opportunity to teach and learn where land-based lessons can best be taught and learned — on the land! The learning that takes place at Brightwater is an extension of provincial curricula and supports the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action in Education. Experiences follow pre-visit preparation in the classroom, and are the basis for many post-visit challenges. There are two Brightwater sites located adjacent to one another on a quarter section of land approximately 14 kilometres south of Saskatoon. Middle years student programming is based from the 100 acres of land rented from the Salvation Army’s Beaver Creek Camp and high school programming is based from the adjoining 60 acres owned by Saskatoon Public Schools.
