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 email@example.com
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 Community Educator
Our Changing Climate seeks to educate youth about the difference between our natural, long term climate fluctuations and
anthropogenic (human influenced) rapid climate change. Let's debunk myths around certain terminology and give real scientific
proof to our point of view. We will discover the difference between weather and climate and look at a climate resource to
understand how our local climate is changing. We will venture to a nearby ecosystem (river, wetlands, forest or farm) and discuss how it is already and may be further affected by climate change in the future.
Finally let's work together let's look at ways that society/new technologies and even ourselves can contribute to mitigate or lessen
our impact on Earth.
Depending on student age we will adapt the key ecosystem we will study on our walk: for K-4 the forest works well, talking about
increased risk of forest fires; for grades 5-8, looking at rivers, flooding, and soil degradation of farming; and for grades 9-12, talking
about wetland and carbon sinks.
