Welcome to our page for parents and caregivers!
Learners in schools across the area known to some as British Columbia are participating in environmental education workshops offered by Sierra Club BC’s Facilitators of Learning.
Our education workshops are inviting learners into a relationship with the beings just outside their doors. This is done in a place-based approach that is rooted in authentic Indigenous lens and voice.
Please keep an eye out on this page for continued learning invitations, activities, stories from our education team, and more!
