Welcome to our page for parents and caregivers!

Students in schools across the province are participating in environmental education workshops facilitated by Sierra Club BC’s Environmental Educators, Kirsten and Amira. Our nature-based workshops are planting 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. There are many proven benefits of spending time outdoors, including a reduction in anxiety and stress, deeper sleep at night time and higher overall health. Visit this page often to find seasonal activities, stories from our educators, and more!

Leave No Trace this Summer

Leave no trace. What does the three-word slogan really mean? Simply put, it is the best practice to follow to enjoy and protect our natural spaces. It’s a lot more than just packing out your garbage.
