Outdoor Education for Schools and Groups
The Gulf Islands, with its First Nations history, incredible flora and fauna, freshwater lakes and spectacular Provincial and National Marine Park Reserves, are an ideal destination for educational eco adventures. The sheltered waters of this archipelago are incredible for kayaking, intertidal exploration and for viewing marine mammals and seabirds in their natural habitats.
We create customized Eco-Ed and Team Building programs for Schools & Colleges - ESL Groups - Cadets - Rangers - Guides & Scouts - Naturalists - Management Groups . . .
Our wilderness adventures are based out of Salt Spring Island, BC and offer a wide spectrum of options that teachers and leaders can choose from. They are safe, exciting, educational and challenging. Professional guides share their knowledge of and love for the environment, teaching the intricate balance within these coastal ecosystems as well as facilitating skill acquisition.
We strive to create outdoor education programs whereby participants will build respect for the natural world and for each other. Through the eclectic outdoor pursuits offered, we hope to ignite in others, a feeling of responsibility and empowerment in protecting these wild spaces for the health of the planet, the species who inhabit them and future generations to play in.
