About our education programs

Since 1998, Sierra Club B.C.’s Education program has provided curriculum-based, outdoor-based nature experiences for 125,000 students and teachers across the province of British Columbia. By directly engaging with local natural environments and centring diverse ecological and traditional knowledges, we offer hands-on activities and experiential learning opportunities that foster healthy childhood development and cultivate environmental sustainability.

We incorporate an approach that is:

  • Nature-Based and Hands-On
  • Inquiry-Based
  • Intersectional and Cross-Curricular (aligned with the new Ministry of Education curriculum)
  • Informed by First Peoples’ Principles of Learning
  • Place-Based
  • 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.
