How do we learn during a pandemic?

Teachers and educators - what do you need?

A new school year has just begun and many teachers and students are anxious,  wondering about what lies ahead of them for the year. With this school year being very different from any other, both teachers and students are slowly adjusting to this “new normal” of learning.

Raincoast has also had to adjust how we educate students, shifting from our transformative experiential and place-based learning to predominantly virtual, online engagement. 

With the pilot Coastal Insights online learning series under our belt, we are now seeking to develop a new series that will continue to engage and inspire students with understanding different perspectives on contemporary stewardship and conservation in the Salish Sea.

In order to better respond to community needs we need your input.  Teachers, parents, caregivers, and program providers, can you help us understand what you need most to help educate and engage students safely?  

If you’re interested in getting more support with educating your class or student(s), please fill out a short survey (link below) to help Raincoast shape our next online learning series. 

With our thanks.

Help us protect KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest

Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, we are raising funds to purchase and permanently protect a 45 acre forested property on the edge of the Salish Sea. The KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest is located within the Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) biogeoclimatic zone, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in Canada. It is also among the most threatened in Canada. Protecting these forests is an investment in our collective future.

We’ve just announced a donation matching campaign to support the purchase and permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest. Every dollar donated before December 31, 2022 will be matched by anonymous donors. This is a chance for you to double your impact!
