Welcome to our new page for parents and caregivers!

Students across the province are participating in our environmental education workshops facilitated by Sierra Club BC’s Environmental Educators, Kirsten and Amira. Our nature-based workshops are planting the seeds to sprout environmental stewards through a holistic shared lens of indigenous teachings and scientific knowledge.

Regular outdoor time with your child can help increase their learning and connection to nature. Visit this page often to find seasonal activities, stories from our educators, and more!

Winter greetings from our Education Team

We are now hosting monthly after-school gatherings for teachers in the Capital Region as well as our Get Outside and Learn! workshops for Pro-D events on Vancouver Island and in the lower mainland.

Raising kids in nature-focused communities

Something I’ve noticed just about everywhere I visit is that people in the community have something in common: they’re all looking to find ways to interact and feel a sense of belonging in their own community and connect with nature.

Sierra Club BC Education Road Trip: Vancouver Island

This fall, Kirsten and I had the mission of hitting the road on two separate trips to teach across Vancouver Island. We had the pleasure of visiting School Districts 68, 69, 71, 72, 84 and 85 and working with new schools, students, and teachers.
