Gr. 6/7 Creatures of Habitat Program

In 2009, Peninsula Streams Society, in partnership with a team of concerned community members, created an environmental education program for Gr. 6 students.  We called it “Creatures of Habitat – Days of Action” to reflect the program’s emphasis on proactivity in the face of our environmental challenges.  Every year since, we have brought a “Day of Action” to middle schools all over the Peninsula. With our team of volunteers, workshop providers and theatre crew, we engage 5-700 Gr.

Seaquaria in Schools

Bringing the Ocean into Schools… and Schools to the Ocean!

Seaquaria brings local marine life into the classroom to let students get up close and personal with some of their aquatic neighbours. Our goal is to build a society that cares about the environment both emotionally and in practice, and to provide the basis for enduring learning skills in an ever-changing world.

Gr. 3 Watershed and Salmon Lifecycle Program

Since 2006, Gr. 3 students in SD63 (and now SD61 also) have participated in our program of Watershed and Pacific Salmon Lifecycle education. This program is delivered to nine schools in the SD 63 (Saanich) region including Deep Cove, Sidney, Brentwood, Prospect Lake, Cordova Bay, Lochside, Keating, Kelset and the LAU WELNEW tribal school. In 2015 we expanded into SD61 with program delivery at McKenzie school with the hopes of expanding into further schools in subsequent years.
