  • Project Webfoot, Ducks Unlimited Canada’s elementary school program, links specifically to the Grade 4 to 6 curricula in jurisdictions across Canada. It creates the opportunity for students to apply their learning and connect with nature through safe, interactive and inspiring educational content both inside and outside the classroom. Research shows that this integrated approach provides a strong and compelling way for students to learn about the environment.
