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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 Program
The I.D.E.A.L. Society Tour presentation is a full day discovery of the farm which includes the animals (chickens, goats, doves, bees, pony etc) and the gardens (the green houses, the berry patches and vegetable garden) at I.D.E.A.L. Society.
According to the age group we share various ideas about:
-the value of connecting with nature and honouring all its richness
-the value of care for animals and how to respond to their needs
-the value of seeing ourselves as part of something bigger
"The facilitators at the Ideal Ranch were very organized, visited us at our school the week before as an intro, prepared to work with the teachers needs and great with students" - Kelly Henderson
"I have done this field trip several times, and it has been excellent, every year. I would highly recommend it for students of all ages." - Tanya Stang
"This was my fourth year visiting the IDEAL Society. It is a highlight of my year and I am never disappointed. There is always so much to do and each year seems to be better than the last. This year we have seen a change in leadership and Cristallin did a great job. I found the initial booking a long and complicated process; however, I am hoping that everything has been sorted out and that next year will be easier. Great job Cristallin! " - Jane Fraser
"There were four excellent activities. The educators where enthusiastic, personable and well-rounded." - Sandra Wales
"Students enjoyed the day!" - Stacey Nohels
"This was our favourite field trip of the year, as always!" - Tanya Stang
"We have always enjoyed the I.D.E.A.L. Society Tour. This year, there seemed to be fewer people involved. And some were not very engaging. Perhaps part of their quiet personality; however, you need to be heard. The one gentleman seemed very disinterested. I think Kindergarten students was completely out of his comfort zone. I felt that you were perhaps understaffed or less prepared for our visit." - Jane Fraser
