As reported in the Dec. 6th edition of the Oak Bay News:
"Seven classes of Grade 4 and 5 students set up individual displays in the library, classrooms and hallway, each answering the question they started with: How will you be a steward to the Salish Sea?
It’s all a part of the award-winning educational partnership with Eagle Wing Tours as students and parents explored the Salish Sea museum on Dec. 1. Launched in fall 2018, the program combines classroom and experiential learning to ignite a passion for ocean conservation in Greater Victoria School District (SD61) students.
The program is highly sought-after, said teacher Leah Edgley, who led one class through its exploration."
The article goes on to note:
"Eagle Wing Tours was among five organizations awarded for outstanding work by the BC Principals’ & Vice-Principals’ Association (BCPVPA) this spring for exactly this program.
The awards recognize time and expertise residents dedicate to supporting students and schools across the province. Eagle Wing Tours was nominated by the Greater Victoria Chapter of BCPVPA (SD61)."
Eagle Wing Tours has been an active partner within the Greater Victoria NatureHood for several years, providing amazing learning experiences children, youth and families for us. In particular, we've been extremely grateful to offer cruises to the Inter-Cultural Association for the past two years. The impact of these experiences can be readily seen in the blog posts below from some of the ICA leaders.
Once again, congratulations to Eagle Wing Tours for connecting children with nature within the Greater Victoria NatureHood!
