The Raincoast Education Society has had a rich past - from the operation of the Raincoast Interpretive Centre, to our current home in the Tofino Botanical Gardens. We have been in operation since 2000 and throughout this time many extraordinary people have come in and out of our offices. Each of them has been part of the story of this Society and has brought, with them, a variety of experience and expertise.  Thank you to all of our past staff and volunteers who have been so integral to the Raincoast Education Society's history.
