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

Lichen Collection for Mountain Caribou

LocationHike location will be based on the school's location as well as the students' age group and ability.

About the Program

We will hike in areas that are abundant in lichen, but where mountain caribou are not currently living. Students, teachers and parent volunteers will all collect lichen that will become food for mountain caribou in maternity pens. During our time together, we will discuss the mountain caribou's habitat and history. Students will learn facts about mountain caribou, why they are a species at risk and what we can do, and are doing, to help them. What are maternity pens and why are they needed right now to help save the mountain caribou from going extinct? How can we move forward in the future to support the mountain caribou and all life in the Inland Temperate Rainforest?

Hike location and duration (half day or full day) will be based on the school's location as well as the students' age group and ability. Information shared will be tailored to the groups age and developmental stage - what is appropriate for their age group and realistic for them to comprehend.
