This contest is for parents, educators and guardians of students, not for children themselves. To enter, you must be age 19 or older and a legal resident of British Columbia. Contestants may only make one photo submission; multiple entries by the same person will not be considered.

Contestants must submit a photo taken outside while connecting to nature in their local environment. NOTE: If you do not wish for a photo of your child to be used, you may simply submit a photo of nature instead. All photos may be used for commercial purposes by Sierra Club BC and participating sponsorship partners, and all legal rights including model releases of any people, especially children, depicted in submitted photos will be granted with full disclosure to participating organizations for use in print, web, video, social media, and as needed.

Winner will be selected at random and must be able to answer a skill-testing question. Field trip must depart from either the Greater Victoria Area or the Greater Vancouver Area. Transportation outside of those areas may be arranged, but cost is not included. Any additional students or chaperones beyond 30 persons will be charged at group rates.

Contest closes March 21. The winner will be announced on April 1, 2017 and the field trip will take place on May 2, 2017.

Soil – Really Important Tiny Lives

At the Compost Education Centre, we "grow soil." We grow nutrient dense healthy foods, and have biodiverse gardens, and that’s because we are concerned with the life that is within our soil. Soil is an extremely important part of the food system. And it’s often a forgotten piece of the puzzle.

My favourite environmental children's books

One of my favorite things to do with a class is to read them a story. I use stories as a way to introduce myself and to share an important key message about nature and our connection as people to nature. Stories enable children to get hooked and become engaged in a program.
