About our education programs

Since 1998 we have offered a variety of free environmental education workshops directly in your community – in your classroom, school yard, homeschool neighbourhood, or a local outdoor space. Our education programs offer experiential learning opportunities that centre diverse ecological and traditional knowledges. They are deeply rooted in the principle that empowering and educating youth is vital to stewarding abundant ecosystems and a stable climate, as well as building resilient, equitable communities.  

We incorporate an approach that is:

  • Place-Based
  • Hands-on
  • Inquiry-Based
  • Intersectional (including cross-curicular and cross-cultural)
  • In authentic Indigenous lens and voice
  • Invitational towards a relationship with the beings just outside our doors



We rely on donations to keep our programs free, accessible, and inclusive. Please donate today to ensure they can stay this way.
