Program Description & Details

In our changing world, teaching ethics has become increasing important in creating responsible global citizens. The new curriculum asks students to make ethical judgements about the past and evaluate the limitations of drawing direct lessons from history.  One approach is to directly compare modern codes of ethics with historical codes from period sources. Studying prescribed codes of ethics from medieval chivalric manuscripts, such as the Book of Chivalry by Geffroi de Charny, and The Flower of Battle by Fiore dei Liberi, helps students examine their own codes of ethics and understand the pitfalls of dubious translations. But chivalry is essentially the ethics of swordfighting, and the best way to learn this is by swinging a sword. This exciting workshop combines hands on swordplay experience for kinesthetic learners with interpretation of historical manuscripts to reach multiple intelligences.

Seasonal monitoring programs include juvenille salmon monitoring, stream assessments, bird surveys and intertidal biodiversity surveys, or, hike through BC Parks routes to one of the off-property field sites for micro plastic surveys and sunset camping, such as Ahous Bay!

Program Description & Details

Field trips are being organized again for this year's 14-day Upcycle Challenge event which is taking place from October 27th to November 9th, 2018

The Upcycle Challenge is an annual event which allows people of all ages to come to our facility and learn about the effects of plastic pollution first hand by helping us sort selected marine debris materials while learning about plastics in our oceans.  This unique opportunity teaches about the effects of resource consumption, ocean conservation, the implications of plastic pollution and sustainable technologies.  

In 2015, we were able to purchase a small scale plastic to fuel machine that is able to convert plastic pollution back into a light crude on-site. This offers individuals an incredible opportunity to learn about revolutionary sustainable technologies for waste management but also gets everyone creatively thinking about solutions to our waste management systems. Ultimately, the goal is to foster an environment which can begin to transform people's understanding around what they consider waste into materials that are treated as a resource.

This year we are anticipating more then 1,500 cubic yards of marine debris from the coastlines of British Columbia. Working with hundreds of volunteers, industries, businesses, government, artists, students and concerned citizens to clean, sort and transform these materials inside our new warehouse space.

We hope to see you this year! 

What to bring:
- Work gloves
- Snacks and Lunch
- Waterbottle
- Any music you would like to listen to (Must be family appropriate)

Hours of Operation are subject to change.

SCHEDULE COMING SOON!

LOCATION: 7700 Vantage Way, Delta, BC 

PARKING: There is available free parking on the other side of the road in the resurant parking lot beside the warehouse space.

FOOD: Please bring your lunch and snacks for the day.

AMENITIES: There are washrooms and drinking water on-site

BACKGROUND
Over the spring and summer of 2018 marine debris and driftage items were recovered from the remote wilderness of Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and residing waterways. During this time hundreds of volunteers and sponsors contributed to large scale cleanup operations to remove marine debris and drfitage along the West and East coasts of Vancouver Island. Loads of debris have been transported to our new warehouse located in Delta, BC. 

*** We will again have our demonstration plastic to fuel machine running as an example of sustainable end of life solutions.*** Come watch bottle caps turn back into a light crude oil***

Come on a journey through time, and learn about the martial history of knights and duellists.

Far from armoured brutes wildly hacking and smashing their enemies, the knights and duellists of the middle ages and renaissance were highly trained martial artists.  Skilled not only with swords, but also with daggers and spears, in and out of armour, on foot and on horseback.

A team of presenters from the Academie Duello will host your students, or travel to your school.  And over the course of an hour describe the martial arts of medieval and renaissance Italy with live demonstartions, a recreation of a medieval judicial duel, and a Q&A period at the end of the presentation.

En garde!

Immerse your students in the middle ages and renaissance, with a lesson in the arts of knightly combat.

Swordplay is a great special program to offer as part of your physical education classes as a single session or an ongoing series. We combine historical swordplay skills with modern physical conditioning techniques in a way that will excite your kids to move. We have had great results engaging students who usually have a hard time in phys.ed. and have found that even push-ups are exciting when swordplay is the reward.

Stepping into Nature is a full-day, outdoor education program that gives grade 6&7 elementary school students a chance to spend time outside learning about their environment and what we can do to protect it.

The goals of the Festival are:
1. To reconnect students with their natural environments,

4. To support youth in the development of leadership skills

Inspired by Richard Louv’s famous book, The Last Child in the Woods, the festival reminds students to shut off technology and reconnect with nature in a meaningful way. The Stepping into Nature Festival has been developed using latest developments in environmental education - transformative pedagogies and environmental inquiry - to build on children’s natural curiosity of the world.
