Wildsight Education 2023/24

This school year, INSPIRE your students to be stewards of the environment by taking them on a place-based, curriculum connected learning journey through one of our Education in the Wild programs! 

We offer half-day programs in nearby nature, full day ecosystem exploration field trips, and multi-day stewardship action opportunities. Choose a program here that will surely be one of the highlights of your school year!

Program Costs

Due to a decrease in funding, Wildsight programs are now offered at a subsidized cost. All bussing costs are now the responsibility of the school. When requesting your program, please choose the program cost option that best suits your schools needs. Thanks to the generosity of individual donors, Wildsight has a very small number of bursaries that reduce the cost to $0 available for schools who cannot pay the regular subsidized program cost. See below to apply for a bursary.
