Mountains of Opportunity: BC Summer Institute 2015

Attention Educators:  Join the Canadian Wildlife Federation and friends for magical mountain moments July 31-Aug. 9, 2015. You don’t want to miss this professional development experience in the Kootenay Rockies, British Columbia's Mountain Playground!

The 2015 Summer Institute will be offered in partnership with the College of the Rockies in Cranbrook. Highlights may include:
  • nature hikes
  • orchard tours
  • wildlife viewing
  • First Nations wisdom
  • artisan talks around the conservation of nature
  • cycling
  • culinary arts
  • and much more.

The 2015 Summer Institute is open to formal and non-formal educators for an anticipated non-credit registration fee of $2,500, tax included. This will cover field trips, most meals, and shared accommodations. Participants are required to pay for and book their own transportation to and from Cranbrook at the beginning and the end of the course; we recommend that you price flights in advance to get an idea of the cost.
From July  31 – August 9 (travel dates inclusive), field trips will be mixed with class time to provide a summer course that is both fun and informative. You will create a photo or video project based on your experiences AND earn a certificate of course completion.

CWF’s goal is to provide you with hands-on education in southeastern BC that you can’t wait to bring home to your students.
