Welcome to our 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!

From Acorn to Wren: The Lost Words

In 2007, when a new edition of the Oxford Junior Dictionary—widely used in schools around the world—was published, it was missing around forty common words related to nature. Sierra Club BC's Amira Maddison reviews "The Lost Words," a book that highlights these missing markers of the natural world.
