Wildsight invites educators to learn with us, about the Columbia River watershed, with our recently-completed curriculum resource. ‘Teach the Columbia’ offers cross-curricular lessons and ideas for high school and college classroom and outdoor learning on topics including watershed geography, Indigenous peoples , ecology and hydrology, ecosystem services, salmon, dams and hydroelectricity, politics and governance, and youth empowerment.
All presenters are trip leaders, educators, guides, and coordinators of the field course program by Wildsight called Columbia River Field School.
Wildsight’s Teach the Columbia team also runs Columbia River Field School (CRFS) - an accredited high school course. For info: www.wildsight.ca/fieldschool.
