Program Description

Looking for a live experience, but current policy has you staying close to home?  We’re taking our Owls and First Nations Hiwus program on the road to your school!   While we would much rather have your students visit an authentic Feasthouse and enjoy the wide open spaces of Grouse Mountain, we realize that’s not always possible.  We are now taking bookings for our Outreach program that will include experienced Educators, owl ambassadors, and First Nations presenters.  Our staff will teach your students about owls and open a discussion about habitat and conservation. In turn, our elder will drum, sing and speak to your students about the rich, Squamish culture and the importance of community.
