Our education activities

In order to achieve its charitable purpose in education, the Makwa Foundation supports several activities to bring to the public's attention the wealth of North American fauna and flora, but also the folkloric heritage of Quebec and Canada. Here are some of those activities.

Kenauk Institute Internship Program

The Kenauk Institute internship program is grateful for the opportunity to take a guided tour of Omega Park. The knowledge of the park, the animals and the work being done is invaluable to this program and gives students an intimate experience with animals that would not be possible elsewhere. These types of opportunities open their eyes to new career paths, fuel their passion for wildlife conservation and give them unforgettable memories.

Educational workshops in primary schools in the region

With a mission to participate in conservation and education projects, the Makwa Foundation, in partnership with Parc Oméga, coordinates educational workshops in primary schools in the region to raise students' awareness of the importance of safeguarding endangered species and preserving biodiversity.


Recently, Vicky Carrière, head of research and conservation projects at Parc Oméga, visited Dansereau-St-Martin elementary school in Grenville to lead a workshop on pollinating insects and more. especially the monarch butterfly, an endangered species.


Each participant received an educational booklet, a monarch sticker, as well as a milkweed plant, the latter being essential for the survival of the monarch butterfly.
