We can host your group to join us doing healing work on the land in combination with sharing cultural and ecological teachings. We have hosted many diverse groups including classes from primary school to university level, community organizations, and international groups.
Programs take place at SṈIDȻEȽ on Tuesdays & Thursdays from March-November, between the hours of 9am-3pm (summer hours may differ).
To book your program contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please bring food, water, work gloves, work boots/shoes, and of course dress for the weather! Activities predominantly involve invasive species removal but can also include mulch and tending native plants. Accessibility is limited but we do our best to accommodate people with disabilities. We appreciate your interest in caring for the WSÁNEĆ homelands!
4hr Program (adult groups) - $425*
*We may waive this fee for indigenous communities, strictly volunteer organizations, and other groups that may not have institutional support to participate in programs with us.
Please note: Our restoration sites at SṈIDȻEȽ are healing really well! Over the past decade, dense invasive cover has been giving way and native plants have much more space to thrive. This means our program days often involve a bit more technical work, like carefully weeding out invasive species from around the small and delicate native plants reemerging on the land. We are so excited about this! However it does mean our capacity for youth programs is now more limited. So we are shifting our focus to adult programs but we would still like to encourage kids to get out there and do restoration! We invite you to book your school/organization staff in for a professional development day with us and help to support more people gaining the skills to do restoration with children & youth. We also have a Restoration Lesson Plan for Teachers resource that can aid teachers in fostering the next generation of land stewards.
We meet all the Learning on the Land groups at our toolshed (beside the washrooms). Look out for our Restoration in Progress Sign.
