Program Description & Details

Cedar Coast Field Station offers K-12+ curriculum-based programming for school groups, specializing in multi-day, overnight trips perfect for graduation groups (elementary/secondary school) and teacher capacity building. Students and teachers alike will reconnect with nature through place-based education, cultural teachings and guided scientific inquiry. Guests learn alongside Cedar Coast staff in participatory, ecological research programs while immersed in the Clayoquot Sound with the goal of students being able to conduct their own ecological research in their own local ecosystems! Just a fifteen minute boat ride from Tofino, education groups will stay in canvas wall tents and share meals in a 5000+sq foot, off-the grid facility. 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! Further, Cedar Coast is working with School Districts to develop for-credit-coures, dual credit courses, work experience opportunities and professional development days for teachers as well!

Workshops can focus on a specific play, or provide a general introduction to Shakespeare. We believe that our activities inspire creativity, community, and joy while students learn about Shakespeare, about themselves, and about one another. Come play with us!

  • Up to 90 minutes long
  • Up to 30 students per workshop
  • Up to three workshops per day
  • Workshops can focus on the story, the imagery or the language (or a combination of all three) in a particular play, or provide a general introduction to Shakespeare.

  • Location: We'll come to you! Thanks to generous donations to the Bard Education Bursary Fund, all travel fees are waived for the 2019-2020 school year.
