CBEEN - Wild Voices - Loon


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 wilvoices@cbeen.org


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.

In this fun interactive presentation kids will learn that the single use items they use everyday are made from valuable materials and should be recycled where possible.

Kids learn best through stories. In this presentation, Tin Can Tina, Bob Bottle, RappingWrapper and other characters/puppets created from everyday single use items will share a little about their life stories (where they come from, their job, future dreams) so that kids understand that the objects we use are made from valuable materials, serve a useful purpose and, if they are recycled, can be turned into another useful item instead of being sent to the landfill or end up as litter polluting our environment. This understanding will help motivate kids to be more diligent recyclers, take better care of their things, and to understand they should avoid wasteful single use packaging when possible.
