Welcome to our award-winning, schools-based education programs!
Since 1998, we’ve worked directly with over 110,000 children and youth, offering environmental education programs. Our focus is to connect children and youth to nature, and to inspire active stewardship.
All of our programs reflect Sierra Club BC’s current campaigns. In classrooms across the province, we build appreciation of the interconnections between the environment and the well-being of BC’s communities.
Our interactive school visits are curriculum-linked, centered on up-to-date science and ecology. Our programs and lesson plans promote diverse environmental values and stewardship actions for participating K-8 classrooms. We also provide environmental leadership training for high school aged-youth.
For educators, Sierra Club BC offers teacher-training workshops. We welcome invitations to hold workshops on our educational resources for working professionals and for student teachers. In addition, our website contains a variety of on‐line and downloadable learning resources to support B.C.’s educators and anyone else with a passion for environmental education!
