The SkeenaWild Education & Outreach Program
Since 2018, SkeenaWild’s Education & Outreach Program has provided interactive classroom workshops, outreach and summer watershed nature 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. Workshops can be delivered inside the classroom, outdoors, or virtually.
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.
SkeenaWild Education Program produces a monthly newsletter to ensure that the education community is kept up to date about environmental education information and opportunities available to educators in the Skeena region. Subscribe today to receive the education newsletter!
We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to our funders!
SkeenaWild is pleased to be offering FREE workshops to all schools in communities in the Skeena Watershed. These workshops are led by an experienced environmental educator and provide hands-on, interactive experiences that support the current BC curriculum. These workshops can be delivered inside the classroom, outdoors, or virtually.
