COVID-19 Cancellation Policy

Wild Voices programs are cancelled for April 2020 through June 2020 due to full and partial school closures in BC.  In the coming months we will be planning ways for the Wild Voices program to restart in September 2020, including new options for online learning with our Wild Voices programs as a new bookable option for our Wild Voices programming.

For online learning in May and June 2020 we encourage you to check out the Wild Voices Online presentation series!  More information and registration can be found at cbeen.ca/wild-voices-online.

About the Program
Mighty Myotis will come into any classroom to describe the life of a local bat.  Adjustable to any grade level, details about bat physiology, ecology, benefits and "fascinating facts" will focus on bats found in Golden but mention the incredible diversity of this group of animals around the world.  A craft helps to round out the time.  We can leave a "bat cave" and school library and paper page resources for the classroom for follow-up.

We use interesting props and activities to reinforce concepts of echolocation, adaptation and ecology.
