HCTF EducationTransportation Grants to Parks and Teacher Professional Development
Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation Education and BC Parks have teamed up to get more students into BC Parks and to bring BC Parks into schools.
If you can’t make it out to a park you can bring a park to your school with the Environmental Exchange Box Program. The exchange box is a physical box that your class curates and shares with another class in BC. It’s a great opportunity to learn about your local environment, share with others and reflect on the biodiversity in our province.
