Take a walk on the wild side and discover how you can explore BC Parks with your students.
Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation Education and BC Parks have teamed up to get more students into BC Parks and to bring BC Parks into schools.
Looking to take your class on a field trip to one of BC’s amazing parks? You can access $600 per class or $3,500 per school in grants to take a field trip.
Need some support in getting your students outside and engaged in an outdoor classroom? Learn how to fully utilize outdoor spaces while also connecting to the curriculum with a free Get Outdoors workshop in a beautiful BC Park.
If you can’t make it out to a park you can bring a park to your school with the Environmental Exchange Box Program. The exchange box is a physical box that your class curates and shares with another class in BC. It’s a great opportunity to learn about your local environment, share with others and reflect on the biodiversity in our province.
