Wild Voices is a unique program in the Basin as it enables local specialists to develop programs connected to the local environment and tailored to their area of expertise and passion. Each CE brings their own unique knowledge of environment or natural history, adds their passion for education, and creates classroom or field-based programs that will both captivate students and satisfy the learning objectives of teachers.
Are you a forester or geographer? A biologist or mountain guide? A historian or holder of traditional knowledge?
Do you have some unique knowledge, skill, or expertise you can share with students? If so, we’d like to connect with you!
Wild Voices provides training and assistance with program development, promotes presenters and their programs, and provides cash honoraria to CEs.
Wild Voices for Kids supports individuals who have specific knowledge or expertise connected to the local environment that can be shared with students in the Columbia Basin region of British Columbia.
