BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!
All programs are now available for booking at the subsidized rates of:
– $150 (1-1.5 hr in class or outdoor program)
– $250 (half-day field study)
– $350 (full-day field study)
Teachers who are current CBEEN members may access one complimentary program (with up to $250 in bussing cost reimbursement) for their classroom in the school year. Up to 200 complimentary programs are available for the 2020-2021 school year to teachers across the Basin on a first-come, first-serve basis.
For the 2020-2021 school year we have a COVID-19 policy in place. Teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs this year. Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at email@example.com
The Wild Voices team is carefully planning for a safe return to working with students and teachers. Our booking system is open for teachers to begin planning and scheduling with educators.
At this time we ask teachers to request booking dates from October 5, 2020 onwards to allow time for us to prepare based on needs as they emerge in September. We also ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking. It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.

About the Community Educator
Shannon Bennett has a Bsc in Earth Sciences and has been working in environmental education since the early 80's as a Park Naturalist in Alberta and BC Parks. She loves to inspire, engage, connect, and motivate students to discover and explore their wild local bioregions, to develop curiosity, knowledge, awareness and appreciation of where they live.
"This educator was unbelievably organized. She was able to change her presentation due to an emergency at the school. She went beyond the requirements of what was asked. " - Karen Walgren
"Shanoon is awesome. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and she is great with kids. " - Scott Kipkie
"There were challenges communicating with the Educator prior to the trip which lead to confusion and inconveniences around delivery dates. This resulted in our class travelling for the program and no educator showing up. I feel this was due to confusing channels for communication. I left messages on the booking page but there was significant delay in response. Additionally there was no way to directly contact the educator via email or phone the clarify the booking details. These miscommunications could have been avoided. There was confusion on day of trip as the location was not accessible and no contingency plan had been arranged. It was a rewarding and engaging day but the quality and the program was impacted due to lost time searching for a new location on the day. " - Matt Gale
"Shanoon is so knowledgeable, but for my antsy little Gr 1/2s maybe a little too wordy. " - Catherine MacKinnon
"Shanoon captivated the students and got them making deep and insightful connections about our learning." - Kyoko Conne
