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.
