The SkeenaWild Education Program
Since 2018, SkeenaWild’s Education Program has provided interactive classroom workshops and educational resources for K-12 students. Our workshops are facilitated by an experienced environmental educator who shares her passion for science and salmon with fun and educational hands-on activities and demonstrations.
In keeping with SkeenaWild’s mandate to protect and conserve wild salmon populations and ecosystems in the Skeena Watershed, the education program teaches students about the importance of our salmon and our watershed.
Want to learn more about wild salmon and the Skeena Watershed? Check out all our salmon and watershed educational materials, including colouring pages, activity sheets, fun facts, games, and experiments you can try.
We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to our sponsors!
SkeenaWild Watershed Nature Summer Camps!
SkeenaWild will be offering three types of summer camp experiences for kids (ages 6-10 years), led by an experienced environmental educator: virtual camps, DIY camp, and in-person camps at Ferry Island in Terrace.
SkeenaWild has developed several lesson plans which adhere to the tenets of British Columbia’s new curriculum standards – they are inquiry-based, place-based, promote experiential learning, provide descriptions of hands-on activities, and incorporate local Indigenous perspectives. These lesson plans provide educators with relevant background information, key definitions, suggested activities, and links to additional resources.
SkeenaWild is pleased to be offering FREE classroom workshops to all schools in communities in the Skeena Watershed. These workshops are led by an experienced enivornmental educator and provide hands-on, interractive experiences that support the current BC curriculum.

Curiosity is Still Open! SkeenaWild continues to support educators. Schools are closed, but educators are still at work, and so is SkeenaWild. Our goal is to continue to support you in creating great Skeena salmon and watershed experiences for your students during these challenging times. Over the coming weeks, we will be adding some video clips highlighting demonstrations, activities and lessons that can be used for students.
