BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!
Due to recent CBEEN program funding changes, we will now offer price options for Wild Voices for Kids programs.
Please select the price option that suits your needs, knowing that some schools don’t have access to the financial resources that others do.
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.
We continue to have a COVID-19 policy in place and teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs.
Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org

About the Program
In the Columbia Basin, we are surrounded by wetlands, streams, lakes and rivers found close to our communities. But we need to understand how these aquatic habitats function and work in order to preserve, restore, maintain their beauty and the services that they provide us such as drinking water, wildlife and recreation.
In this program we use aquatic habitats in our backyard to demonstrate a wide variety of ecological concepts. Through the activities and lessons provided, students can develop the foundation for literacy in the life sciences.
This "boots on the ground" field trip enhances student understanding of the environmental, technological and social aspects of science and encourages them to work together to solve problems, as well as to develop an appreciation for science and a sense of wonder about wetlands.
About the Community Educator
Darcie has spent 28 years working in the area of aquatic ecology and restoration techniques. She is passionate about community engagement and has collaborated with non-profits in a number of projects including water quality and flow monitoring of streams, and
assessing the health of streams, wetlands and lakes. Darcie often gives talks and provides outreach each year to school groups, and citizen scientists who want to learn more about these important habitats that are in our backyards.
