Nature is often the inspiration for great art: poetry, story-telling, music, photography, painting, drawing, and so much more! 

Did your WildED program, or another nature experience, inspire your inner-artist? If so, please tell us about your nature-inspired art, and even better, share your creation here!

Please put your first name (only), grade, and school name on your post. And remember... your post can be seen by anyone who wants to read our blog! : )

Kerrisdale Elementary School at Capilano River Regional Park

Hi WildED, 

Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to come to the watershed again this year. We had lots of fun and learned lots as usual!

The kids were all split in teams of 4-5 and they did either a slideshow or a Prezi on what's in the park, why the park is important, and how can we protect it. They presented their work to other students at school and we then voted for the best presentations.

The winner was this Photo Story slideshow with voice over:

The runner-up project was a Prezi slideshow that can be seen here

Thank you,
Marie-Nancy Bourque
Grade 6/7 FI Teacher

Queen Alexandra Elementary Completes a WildED-Inspired Action Project!

Dear WildED, Both classes have been fully engaged in a sustainability unit which culminated in the action plan to reduce our school's garbage. Throughout the process they have been making presentations to both staff and students to increase their motivation to fully participate in our overall goal. They have taken (WildED's) carbon footprint test and committed to at least one more action to reduce their mark on the world. They have done an amazing job and have already been recognized by the Vancouver School Board for their amazing efforts.

Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed our (WildED) program and would love to hear about your programs next year. Take care and thanks, Grade 4/5 Classroom Teachers, Queen Alexandra Elementary School, Vancouver
