Nature Programs at Your School
Programs in schools will be resuming in Spring 2024! Registration will open soon.
School programs are designed for districts 61, 62, 63, 64 and surrounding independent schools. They are held at in your classroom and school yard, during the school year, from September until June. All programs offered in schools are 60 minutes and require a minimum of two programs to book. If you would like to book a program at the Nature Sanctuary, check out our on-site school programs (URL Embedded).
Please note: the maximum number of student attendees per program is 28. For grades 4 and up, we can accommodate 30 students for select programs including Garry Oak, Reptiles, Adaptations, and Rocks & Fossils, following BC Regulations (URL Embedded).
Unfortunately, we do not have the staff to support simultaneous programming for 2 classes.
We require 48 hours notice for cancellations. Any cancellation within 48h before class start or any no-shows is non-refundable. It puts a lot of strain on a small non-profit organization to offer refunds (due to staff time and the cost of issuing e-transfers). We appreciate your understanding.
