Education in the Wild

Engaging, experiential ecology field trips for primary and intermediate students.

Wildsight gives kids the knowledge and experience of the natural world that they need to protect, conserve and cherish it. Our three Education in the Wild programs — Classroom with Outdoors, Winter Wonder and Eco-Stewards — are offered for free across the Columbia Basin. All programs are directly liked to grade-specific Prescribed Learning Outcomes. And because the students learn about the living world while they are in the living world, the lessons tend to stick! Our education team is made up of highly-qualified educators, who bring these programs alive in their own communities and share their love of the wild with the next generation.

“Reconnecting our children with our natural surroundings is what makes the Wildsight educational programs so valuable to children and parents in the Columbia Basin.” -David Suzuki
