Galiano Eco-Survivor

Hone your sense of direction as you home in on our island wilderness.

Grades 3-8

Join us as we orient ourselves at the Millard Learning Centre, with its 80 acres of mature coastal forest and two kilometers of waterfront.  We’ll master navigation, compass and map-reading skills to find Galiano Island’s ecological treasures. And, we will get hands-on with basic survival skills such as fire making, shelter building and knot-tying.  For the grand finale we will gain a sense of place (and more survival skills) through identifying native edible plants.

It’s a day full of nature-based outdoor learning, as we work together to master low-tech, high-fun, potentially life-saving skills.  Unforgettable.
