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 Program
Explore solutions to climate change, even ways to reverse global warming with Project Drawdown. Through engaging exercises,
we will connect to solutions that are inspiring for us.
Often climate change classes focus on the problems with a final short time to the alternatives and solutions. In this overwhelming
time when many of us experience climate anxiety, this workshop offers a new story for local and global change and engages
students to be active hopeful citizens.
Project Drawdown, an international coalition of more than 200 researchers and other experts who identified and presented the 80 most substantive solutions to global warming. Founded by author, environmentalist, and entrepreneur Paul Hawken, the group revealed their extraordinary findings: that it is possible not just to slow global warming, but to actually begin reversing it by 2050. Drawdown is that point in time when the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begins to decline on a year-to-year basis. It is when we begin to actually reverse global warming. https://www.drawdown.org/
