BC curriculum-linked programs for grades 4 - 8 can be scheduled as either 1/2 day or full day programs. Full-day programs are recommended as they allow for time outdoors in a natural area on or near your school grounds. Programs for grades 9 - 12 are flexible depending on class time available.

Outdoor experiences provide a more in-depth and memorable learning experience for students beyond what a textbook can convey. WildED's Outdoor Classroom programs move the science classroom into nature where students experience, explore, and learn first-hand. We provide innovative outdoor, science-based programs that are BC curriculum-linked for students in grades 4 to 12.
Outdoor Classroom programs include:
EXPLORING THE NATURE OF OUR CHANGING CLIMATE with WildED (Grades 5 - 8)
Join WildED in the Outdoor Classroom, where we combine active exploration with up-to-date scientific information in one of four spectacular parks to tell the story of our changing climate. This fun and hopeful program emphasizes our human/nature connection and the potential for personal action to create solutions for positive change.
GETTING TO KNOW OUR REGIONAL PARKS with WildED (Grades 4 - 12)
What do salmon, wildlife, First Nations, rivers, drinking water, rainforests, wetlands, and recreation all share in common? They are all part of the amazing story of our Regional Parks! Join WildED on an outdoor adventure as we experience the wonder and living lessons offered by our Regional Parks, making personal connections to special places and diverse species.
THE PARKS EDUCATION OUTDOOR CLASSROOM AT MOUNT SEYMOUR (Grades 4 - 7)
Experience WildED's school program based out of the Parks Heritage Centre in Mount Seymour Provincial Park. WildEDucators lead interactive, educational sessions in the Parks Heritage Centre and then take learning into the outdoor classroom on one of Mount Seymour's many spectacular trails, where students actively explore and hike among majestic Douglas Firs and Western Red Cedars.
GUIDED NATURE HIKES
All WildED Nature Hikes are full-day programs that also require an additional half-day pre-hike visit from WildED.
WildED's guided Nature Hikes offer students the chance to get outside and have fun while learning! During exciting full day programs students will connect to nature through experience, learn to appreciate the wonder of wild places, and discover the fascinating ecosystem they live in. Led by our WildEDucators, who are professional teachers as well as experienced outdoor recreation leaders, the Nature Hikes Program takes an experiential approach to learning about nature, parks and wilderness areas we are so fortunate to have.
Workshops for Teachers
Hands-on educational workshops for teachers' conferences and Pro-D days that provide a detailed overview of our curriculum linked syllabus, as well as a better understanding of how to go outdoors with your students.
