    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.
