Placed-Based Learning Workshops

I loved how hands-on everything was! The fishing in the river with the nets was amazing! I will take my children on more walks outside, I will make connections to the land, I will include opportunities for Elders to come to my classroom to share their knowledge.

~ Tecaher, Renfrew Elementary School, Educator Workshop, September 2019

Workshops are geared towards educators who are looking to expand their toolbox of teaching strategies and approaches within the field of outdoor placed-based education. Visiting groups choose from a range of seasonal outdoor activity sessions, and programs are tailored to meet each group’s interests. From the ancient cedar forest to our teaching hatchery and many km’s of salmon spawning habit, Cheakamus Centre has a wide range of accessible and inspiring outdoor learning possibilities. Through hands on learning approaches, educators will take with them new ideas and practices to help engage their students in environmental learning.

Workshops will include a snack and full lunch served in the award-winning Environmental Learning Centre.
