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.

The Teachings of Trees program will share with students the many lessons that plants and trees teach us about our selves, the earth and its role in climate regulation. Students will also learn how to identify trees using common, scientific and indigenous names by referring to guide books and will learn about some of their special uses. By participating in group and pair share activities, students will learn the tree parts and functions as well as the deeper role root systems and mycelium (fungi) play in trees communication and survival.
The Teachings of Trees program will take place outdoors and will be interactive, engaging, and will help students develop a deeper and more thoughtful understanding of the role trees and plants have on our ecosystem health.
