About the Program
The Squamish River Watershed Society (SRWS) Outreach Program is delivered annually to Squamish elementary school students and facilitates experiential learning through interactive activities in various parts of the watershed (typically focusing on the estuary or rivers). It connects over 600 students to our watershed and all it supports through authentic, hands-on activities and adventure. The program is offered free of charge to schools and relies on donations from community sponsors, grants, as well as help from numerous volunteers and partners. We are extremely grateful for the support we’ve received for the program over the years.
Location and Dates:
For 2019, the program took place at the end of Bailey St. near the beginning of the trails to the West Wind Brownfield Restoration site. The program ran April 30, May 1-2 and and May 7-9.
How to sign-up if you're an elementary school educator?
An e-mail is sent to educators in all elementary schools in Squamish during the month of February to notify them of a first-come first-serve sign-up survey. An e-mail is sent in mid-late March to notify educators if they received a time slot for their classes, including details about the program and prep-work that is suggested before attending. Sign-up is now closed for this year.
