CBEEN has been working for over a decade to build a community of engaged and effective educators by connecting them with the best resources, information, professional development, delivery and networking opportunities available.
We are pleased to provide you with a listing of excellent environmental education resources and databases, a job and volunteer board, a page that highlights grant opportunities, updated information on the new BC Education Plan and a Professional Development Bursary Program.
Networks facilitate connections and information exchange among individuals who share common professional interests, inspiring innovation and efficiencies. This is especially important in the Columbia Basin where our communities are small, geographically dispersed and resources are limited.
CBEEN is energized by facilitating these connections, and we are excited to provide opportunities to do so at our annual Voices for Sustainability Symposium, Environmental Education Leadership Clinic, Professional Development Workshops & Webinar, as well as though our online community and events calendar.
Wild Voices for Kids
CBEEN’s Wild Voices for Kids program offers opportunities for students to learn about our incredible local environment. We’ve been providing environmental education presentations and field trips since 2008. Programs now available in school districts 5, 6, 8, 10, 19 and 20.
We now offer over 100 curriculum-linked presentations delivered by over 50 local experts. These Community Educators (CEs) have a deep understanding of their subject area. Whether they are geologists, foresters, wildlife biologists or organic farmers, these programs are built and delivered by CEs, and tailored to the communities they live in.
