About our education programs

Since 1998, Sierra Club B.C.’s Education program has provided curriculum-linked, outdoor-based nature experiences to nearly 150,000 students and teachers across the province of British Columbia. Our workshops are centered around diverse ecological and traditional knowledges and are facilitated by educators who share their passion for directly engaging with local natural environments. These experiential learning opportunities foster healthy childhood development and cultivate environmental stewardship and sustainability.

We incorporate an approach that is:

  • Nature-Based and Place-Based (including an outdoor component at or near each school)
  • Hands-on
  • Inquiry-Based
  • Intersectional and Cross-Curricular (aligned with the new Ministry of Education curriculum)
  • Informed by First Peoples’ Principles of Learning
  • Rooted in the principle that connecting with nature is a core aspect of environmental stewardship

Our programs are available in any community in British Columbia.



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