Salmon Teaching Resources

Date & Time
Wednesday, November 3, 2021, 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

How can we inspire and educate the next generation of environmental stewards? Place-based, inquiry-led and experiential learning is the foundation of the SkeenaWild Education Program, delivering interactive classroom workshops, outdoor field experiences, and outreach watershed nature education for K-12 students and educators since 2018. This session will highlight the experiences of developing this Skeena Watershed-focused education program, and share experiences of students connecting to their local watersheds, going beyond the walls of their schools and learning outside in their local natural environments. How can we teach students about the importance of our salmon, our watersheds, and the threats that they face? Those who have done just that answer.
