I really enjoyed the time I spent volunteering with Sierra Club BC Environmental Educator Kirsten Dallimore. It was great to see an experienced environmental educator in action.
Standing at Clover Point and looking out into the Salish Sea, it’s hard to believe there are giants swimming just off in the distance: humpback whales.
Wow! What a great school year! From Quesnel and Victoria to Surrey and Vernon, our Education Team delivered nature education at schools all across the province. Together, we are fostering healthier children and a healthier planet.
