The goal of the education program is to develop and deliver environmental school programs that increase youths’ awareness, understanding and appreciation of the ecological processes and environmental issues of the Atlantic region, and to encourage environmental stewardship actions. We presently have two active programs, Wild Child and Sierra Buddies.
· Bringing People Together
We will act in the spirit of community, cooperation and teamwork in the interest of promoting, enhancing and supporting sound environmental education within Canada.
· Connections with the Earth
We focus on the interconnectedness of our ecosystems, linking the local to the global. We encourage environmental stewardship and sustainability to help reduce human impact on the planet.
We seek to provide skills that stimulate critical thought and empower participants to initiate and continue environmental activities. Our Education Programs are based on sound, credible science and are presented in an unbiased fashion, thus allowing students to consider a wide range of opinions and values to make sustainable choices.
· Education by Doing
Centered around hands-on interactive activities, our resources and programs help participants derive a sense of place.
