On getting kids outside during the coldest months. Tips and stories from environmental educator Kirsten Dallimore
There's still 12 days left to participate in #OctoberOutdoors. Hear from Simone Cotterill on what you can do each day to get outside.
Just over one year ago Laura Hope became a mother. Not only did she feel the need (and desire) to get outside with her son as often as possible, but it also crystallized her commitment to doing all she can so that he can inherit a healthy, safe, livable planet. Join Laura in spending this #OctoberOutdoors.
Our Environmental Educators, Kirsten and Amira, delivered over 200 workshop during the 2016/17 school year to nearly 5000 students at 74 different schools in 18 school districts across the province!
#OctoberOutdoors is a fun way to get you, your family, and your friends outside every day for the month of October while raising funds for the big picture work that Sierra Club BC is doing to defend nature and confront climate change.
Our Education Team facilitated six environmental education professional development workshops for teachers in May. The workshops covered topics such as building a routine to take your class outside regularly and connections to the new BC curriculum. Their goal is to expand this Pro-D training to all teachers by 2020.
