What Our Educators Think
The CPAWS guide (Vanessa) was incredible!! She was amazing with connecting with the newcomer kids and made the content perfect for their age and language levels.

Sheri’s expertise, enthusiasm and encouragement allowed them to truly interact with their grasslands. Allowing games to act as a vehicle for curriculum kept everyone engaged and allowed for deep learning connections. They all wanted to answer and ask questions, because your program allowed them to each find their own learning spark on the landscape. Moments of hands-on, independent discovery are powerful.

“The presenter did a great job engaging the students in the material she was presenting. Excellent activities done in the classroom with the students. Additionally, the hike was great! The hike leaders were very knowledgeable and again engaged all the students in various activities to reinforce their understanding. Myself and all my students thoroughly enjoyed the program!”
– Grade 7-9 teacher, Omar Bin Al Khattab School
“Amazing facilitators/educators. I loved how connected they became with the groups, checking in on each of us, providing more scientific knowledge and background and really engaging the children in the learning! Also, after the program, the time during the child surveys watching the connection and how the leaders spoke with a couple of the children was beyond incredible. It is evident how passionate, caring, and wonderful they both are! I loved that, even though some of the scientific language was large the explanation came to help the children understand and really love nature and the natural world!”
– Ms. Langman, K-3 Educator, Boys and Girls Club of Cochrane
