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
In this exciting day program, we will focus on reawakening our senses to the natural world through hands on exercises, critical observation and activities where students will be required to rely upon the skills of one another to accomplish tasks. We will focus on activating peripheral vision, blindfolded partner exercises, plant identification and how to walk with less disruption to the natural world.
We will study other animals as a model of how to move through woods attracting less attention, as well as learn about various local plants and how they can help us camouflage ourselves. To finish off the day, we will have a modified game of Capture the Flag where teams will be required to work together and combine their newly possessed skills to accomplish a shared goal.
