We support teachers and inspire students.
Simply put, this our raison d’être! We give incredible teachers the means to venture far beyond their teaching objectives. We empower them to inspire and engage young stewards by incorporating environmental and natural resource education into their classrooms.
We believe it is essential to consider multiple perspectives.
It’s clear our society has become polarized about the issues that matter most. But there are more than two sides to a story. Our ability to balance a healthy environment with a productive economy demands a careful look at the range of values at play -- the spectrum that lies between black and white.
Our unique programs immerse learners into the big picture, giving them a balanced look at key issues. We challenge everyone to become responsible citizens by understanding the science, technology and issues that affect our world.
We believe firsthand experiences are invaluable.
“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand.” – Chinese proverb
We believe in the power of experiential learning. Our professional development programs expose teachers to great adventures. It may be a raft trip down the Bow River, a dinner visit with an Aboriginal community, a helicopter ride over the majestic Boreal forest, or a tour to the heart of Alberta’s oil sands. We believe that a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to truly experience our natural world creates a lasting connection to it.
We believe in the potential of critical thinking.
It’s easy to simply be a critic.
Our inquiry-based programs challenge students to find creative solutions and become involved in shaping their own future. We believe in sparking curiosity in our next generation, so they learn how to ask questions, make important connections and broaden their perspective of the world.
We believe in what we do.
We are team of professionals dedicated to making a difference. This is the reason we come to work with a big smile on our faces every day. For over 28 years, we've been fuelled by our passion, connecting Canadian students and teachers to our natural world in a meaningful way.
Playing a role in fostering a new generation of stewards of our environment and natural resources is what truly excites us. We have formed strong partnerships with others that share our passion. If today’s students become informed and engaged leaders in tomorrow’s issues, able to make informed responsible decisions, we believe the world will be in good hands.
We are a charitable education society providing programs that enable Canadian teachers and students to understand the science, technology and issues related to our environment and natural resources.
We envision future generations of engaged stewards who think critically about our environment and natural resources, and their complex relationship with our economy and society.
