All programs are now available for booking at the subsidized rates of:

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
This program is perfect to inform students what is going on in their forests. We will talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly in an informative, fun, and creative nature walk. We will explore the forest and identify trees, look for diseases, pests, beetles, take tree samples, look for tree anomalies, listen to stories/legends with a range of investigation types. The students will get an opportunity to see and hold a beetle, the size of a grain of rice who has wiped out thousands upon thousands of hectares of forests. This program is an overall program to get students excited to learn and desire to learn more about the forests by discovering things they've never seen before.
This program may be booked as a 1 hour, half-day and full-day program. All programs include an interactive lesson that may be done in class or outdoors. The longer half-day and full-day programs provide further exploration of the program topic in a nearby natural space.
