Our programs are designed to plant the seed of environmental curiosity by educating people about British Columbia’s diverse ecology. We believe hands-on activities and outdoor recreation creates understanding and lifelong connection to the natural world.
Our mission is to provide high quality programming that surrounds children in nature while encouraging creativity, community, and growth.
Our children’s programs offer your kids a place to play and learn about nature away from the classroom. Sign them up for our year-round Forest School or check out our Pro-D day camps and watch them grow into confident, outdoorsy, and environmentally conscious humans.
A diverse educational space
Our forest is almost 10,000 hectares of public “working forest” situated in the heart of British Columbia’s Cariboo region. Full of diversity, it features 3 distinct ecological regions, and showcases a variety of forest management strategies that can be used to protect landbase objectives, such as wildlife habitat and old growth characteristics.
Passionate about nature
We’re a group of individuals who care greatly about the environment around them and wish to share that passion with the people that visit us.
