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 2021-2022 school year to teachers across the Basin on a first-come, first-serve basis.

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.

As with the previous school year, we have a COVID-19 policy in place for the 2021-2022 school year.  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 wildvoices@cbeen.org

About the Program
In this field study, meet the aquatic creatures in the local pond, stream or wetland habitats. Students will discover their special adaptation abilities such as feeding habits that are unique to their habitats, through sampling with nets and other hands-on activities. For grades 7-9, students will be shown how to calculate the pollution index. This reflects the impact of pollution and the importance of good stewardship of our natural waters.

"Jane was extremely well prepared, very engaging and had strategies to keep the class on task and safe went out by the river. Her hands-on activities were really fun and the information she shared was accessible and interesting to the whole range of students I have (K-7)." - Sarah Keenan
