CBEEN - Wild Voices - Loon


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
Our food has far reaching impacts on the earth and our communities. Drawing examples and inspiration from Kootenay Meadows Organic Dairy Farm, Swan Valley Honey, and surrounding pastures, creeks and ponds, Nadine will explore how humans, our food and the environment are interconnected.

About the Community Educator
Nadine was raised in the Creston Valley on the Kootenay Meadows Farm. Her lifelong passion for local food and organic farming has led her to Nelson, where she works as the Kootenay Co-op's True Local Coordinator: supporting both local suppliers and a local market for sustainable food production.
