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 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
Global climate change is real and needs to be addressed. This program will talk about a local environmental disaster, the whitebark pine being a threatened species that needs our protection. This program will give students an opportunity to learn how species extinction effects them, the environment, and encourages them to become better global citizens.

The program will include information about the Mountain Pine Beetle, Whitepine blister rust, the importance of wildfires, soil and snowpack retention, slope stability, and the integral role the Clarke's Nutcracker plays in planting new whitebark trees. It will also include tree identification, games, and nature crafts. Includes free posters, pencils, and a downloadable colouring sheet (while supplies last).

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.

"Darcee is a wonderful presenter! She was able to interact with my students, adjusting her plans and activities to meet their needs both educationally and interest/attention wise. She applied many hands-on and adapted practices for teaching new information and my students and I left feeling very successful and satisfied with our day! She was also very flexible in her planning, both before the actual date of the booking and during the activities themselves!" - Josee Dumont
