BOOK A WILD VOICES FOR KIDS PROGRAM!
Due to recent CBEEN program funding changes, we will now offer price options for Wild Voices for Kids programs.
Please select the price option that suits your needs, knowing that some schools don’t have access to the financial resources that others do.
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.
We continue to have a COVID-19 policy in place and teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs.
Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at email@example.com

About the Program
Get to know your local place by connecting to the trees nearby through your senses, storytelling, imagination and active games. Activities include examining bark, cones, seeds, branches, leaves, and needles of local common species; smelling essential tree oils; getting to know a tree only by the sense of touch, and playing a game about forest fire. A engaging way to learn the names and features of a few local trees by the Coyote mentoring way of nature connection.
About the Community Educator
After graduating university, one of Malin's first jobs was to teach climate change to schools in Sweden. Her passion for nature and social justice has lead her to travel to many countries, to be a volunteer and activist, and now to homestead in the West Kootenay. Since 2017, Malin has offered forest preschool and nature camp programming in Nelson.
