BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!
Due to recent CBEEN program funding changes, we will now offer price options for Wild Voices for Kids programs.
Please select the price option that suits your needs, knowing that some schools don’t have access to the financial resources that others do.
We 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 that is delivering the program.

Not available until after January 2024
About the Program
Aquatic macroinvertebrates are small animals without backbones that live in water and are big enough to see with the naked eye. Because they are fascinating creatures, students will be introduced to their physiology, adaptations, and feeding habitats.
Students get to dress up in a bug costume while learning about their unique adaptations. A fun game of Simon Says will teach students feeding habits for each bug. Students will also try to match the main body parts of a bug, as well as the corresponding larva or nymph to the correct adult through fun games. Where possible, live samples of marcoinvertebrates will be brought to the classroom for students to identify and explore.
This program is an introduction for my half-day field study.
