About our education programs

At Sierra Club BC, we foster environmental awareness, connectedness, and action in children and youth.

For over 17 years, our environmental education programs have supported students and teachers to get outside, to learn about B.C.’s ecosystems and climate, and to make change through positive environmental actions. Our youth programming inspires young people to become leaders in the field of social and environmental change.

If you would like to support us to a particular school or community, please contact our Education Program Coordinator, Lisa Dumoulin.

SPECIES STORY: Black Huckleberry

Through the summer, bright red berries hang like jewels from the shrub's delicate branches. The berries beckon to all who pass—feather or fur—and deliver a punch of sweet and sour flavour.

FUN FACTS: What's in a name?

Did you know that well over 50 languages are spoken in B.C., including over 40 First Nations languages? With that much language diversity, one can guess that something as common as a huckleberry might go by many different names.
