Raincoast Education has two new Field School Coordinators, please welcome Savannah Lincez who is based in Ucluelet working with the teachers and students in the Ucluelet Elementary School and  Sophia Lloyd-Jones who is based in Tofino working with the teachers & students of the Wickaninnish Elementary School.⁠ 📚⁠
⁠
Sophia spent her childhood on the West Coast looking for crabs, hugging giant trees, and building homes for creatures.  She comes to us from Vancouver with a Bachelors of Fine Arts and Education. Sophia is excited to take on the roll of Tofino Field School Coordinator where she can support outdoor education in the public school system. Sophia brings an ability to create cross-curricular connections between science, creativity, and place-based learning. ⁠🌄⁠
⁠
Savannah is excited to start melding two of her passions, facilitating meaningful learning and appreciating the natural world around us. She received her Bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta and also holds an Early Childhood Educator certificate. She loves to foster curiosity, lead with kindness and make connections. She has lived in the area for just over a year and is enjoying every minute of it from paddle boarding or tidepooling to walking her dog in the sideways rain! 🌈⁠
⁠
Raincoast Field School is an outdoor education program designed to meet BC curricular outcomes while providing hands-on learning opportunities for students in our local public schools. It is a collaborative program developed by the Raincoast Education Society (RES) and the teachers at the Tofino and Ucluelet elementary schools.⁠

@getoutsidewithkids @pete.clarkson Artist and former Parks Canada Park Warden Pete Clarkson (@pete.clarkson) has had enough adventures to fill an entire podcast series!⁠
⁠
In addition to making waves around the world with his colourful and inspiring marine debris artwork, Pete has worked in two of the most iconic National Parks in Canada and raised three kids with his wife in the beautiful town of Tofino.⁠
⁠
Now that Pete’s kids are adults, he takes us through his family’s journey from the mountains to the ocean on this week’s podcast episode.⁠
⁠
Tune in to hear:⁠
🏔 About Pete’s amazing career, starting on horseback in the backcountry of Jasper, to the shorelines of Tofino, and around the world as an artist⁠
⚽️ How Pete and Jen approached kids’ organised activities in a small town with few facilities⁠
🌊 One of the absolute wildest “when things went wrong” stories we’ve had on the podcast (seriously! It was even crazier than the bonkers story shared by @mentoringnatureconnections in episode 20)⁠
❤️ So much wisdom, lots of great takeaways and a whole bundle of laughs⁠
