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

The world is OLD. Lets find out how old it is, how scientists measure this and how the land and climate we see changes over time.

We will learn what the Earth is made of, as well as learn to identify different types of rocks and get a demonstration of the Rock Cycle. There will also be an introduction to the concept of Geological Time, which will include a fun quiz to remember the names of different eras and epochs. We will also talk about climate, as well as weathering as an agent of change.

About the Community Educator

Both Jade and Alex have a BSc in Physical Geography, and the two of them have written and delivered programs about climate, earth science, and geology to students in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, and now in Canada. Jade and Alex enjoy being able to share their knowledge and passion for the natural world and the pure magic that underpins the interconnecting cycles that make our planet work and habitable for us.
