Continuing on with our bats lesson, the students loaded onto the brand new Raincoast bus and headed to the Tofino Botanical Gardens.
About Field School
The Raincoast Field School program meets BC curricular outcomes while bringing youth outdoors for hands-on learning opportunities. Raincoast Education Society (RES) and the teachers at the Tofino and Ucluelet elementary schools collaborate to design each field trip outing and lesson.
Raincoast Field School is made possible with the support of the administration and teaching staff at local schools, and the generosity of organizations, businesses, and individuals within the community. The curriculum is designed to build upon itself each year, representing a long-term commitment to the students. Our instructors are highly skilled educators in a full-time position with the RES, committed to the program, and the community they teach in.
