Education

Education is a primary goal of BC Nature and we offer a number of educational opportunities. These include:

  • Local nature clubs provide programs in environmental education and nature interpretation in their communities. Several of the clubs also offer scholarships to students in their local areas. Check out the club in your areafor more details.
  • Two BC Nature conferences are held each year and a quarterly BCNature magazine is published for members.
  • Members are offered a variety of field camps in interesting natural environments.
  • A very comprehensive report on the complete BC Parks Interpretative Program.  Due to lack of funding, the Park Interpretation program is currently on hold.
  • We are actively involved in the Regional Science Fairs and sponsor regional prizes. For more on BC’s Science Fair program, updates in 2014 have allowed us to offer more awards to High School Students.  View the updated program here.
  • BC Nature provides a $1,500 Rene Savenye Scholarship to a post-secondary student enrolled in a program that contributes to awareness, appreciation and understanding of our natural environment. To download an application form, click here.
