We can accommodate 2 classes per day with half the day led by one of our professional educators and the other half by the teacher (teachers are provided activities and equipment to use on-site or can create their own half day curriculum).
A busing subsidy is also provided to help offset travel costs.
This program is offered through partnerships with Alberta Environment and Parks, the Forest Future Alliance, the Forest Resource Improvement Association of Alberta, Sustainable Forestry Initiative and Inside Education.
