Experience Metro Vancouver’s Watersheds… Virtually!
Virtual Watershed Field Trip: Pilot Program
60 minutes start to finish
Offered free of charge to schools in the Metro Vancouver region
January, 2021 - June, 2021
In lieu of regular field trip programming, we are offering teachers and students the opportunity to participate in a new Pilot Program: the Virtual Watershed Field Trip. Discover the treasures of the Seymour and Coquitlam Watersheds through an engaging, curriculum connected, live virtual field trip where our facilitator “visits” with a series of activities and videos to bring the watersheds alive in your classroom (or to the students’ homes if doing remote learning). Our watersheds are unique places where wildlife abounds, ancient trees tower above, and water moves through natural landscapes to our drinking water supply system. As we can’t have you join us at the watersheds this year, we will bring the dam to you, and show how water gets from the reservoir to your tap. We will explore what makes watershed ecosystems important through fun, student-centered activities, and have students engage with the concepts of water use and sustainability. Once you’ve experienced the virtual tour, you’ll be reminded every time you turn on the tap! Pre and post activities and resources included. Book your “tour” by filling out the tour request form here:
