School membership

With a NatureKids BC school membership, we support teachers like you in your efforts to incorporate place-based learning into the classroom and nature into the school community. It can help you address the big ideas and core curricular competencies for science, as well as other subjects such as math, language and arts, through resources and support.

Membership is just $50/per year for a school membership. You can also download a form to mail in along with a cheque.

A school membership includes:

NatureWILD: The only magazine written about BC wildlife and ecosystems for elementary-aged youth. Each issue features fun and informative articles written by top BC naturalists and biologists, stories about children taking action for the environment, an easy-to-read story, and much more. You will receive two hard-copies each quarter with an option to order more ($12/year per extra copy (four per year).

Curriculum Connections guide: Each issue comes with an accompanying Curriculum Connections guide linking NatureWILD’s content to the BC curriculum and helping teachers meet cross-curricular learning outcomes. School members receive their digital copy in our quarterly newsletter that goes out shortly after NatureWILD arrives at your doorstep. View the Fall 2017 Curriculum Connections guide here.

NatureKids e-newsletters: Delivered to your inbox, full of seasonal activity and teaching ideas, resources, grant alerts and more, the e-news connects BC teachers in the community.

Teaching resources:  Complimenary resources like our new Life in the Leaf Litter ID card.

Annual Small Stewardship Grants: Sometimes it just takes a little to achieve a lot. Each year a limited number of small stewardship grants are made available to NatureKids BC school members and family nature clubs to support local stewardship and citizen science projects, such as native plant gardens, habitat restoration or bird /bee box building.
