The Habitat Conservation Area (HCA) is a 23-acre site in Wascana Centre that has been set aside for wildlife, providing valuable habitat for various mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects and plants. Here, people have the opportunity to unplug and explore what nature has to offer. The HCA is a hidden gem that is rich in wildlife and learning potential, making it the ideal outdoor classroom. From pond dipping, bird watching, weeding, planting, catching insects or solving nature's crimes, students can do it all. Explore the HCA by listening for the unique calls of the Bobolink, watching the pelicans glide above the water searching for a quick bite, seeing the turtles bask on the banks on a sunny day, or just coming to enjoy being out in nature walking the trails or bringing a good book to read on the dock. The HCA has so much to offer right here in the city! Below is a list of programmes Wascana Centre offers, or click here for more details.
