As summer approaches, the communities of the Clayoquot Biosphere Region are resetting and re-imagining our future during the COVID-19 recovery phases and beyond. This issue highlights upcoming education programming both for visitors and residents alike. At this point, most learning opportunities are online, fitting with current provincial guidelines that BC residents stay close to home and restrict non-essential travel. Please continue to follow provincial guidelines and when the time for travel resumes, check our local Destination organizations Tourism Tofino and Tourism Ucluelet before planning a trip to the west coast.
Join organizations such as the Wild Pacific Trail Society, Raincoast Education Society, and Ucluelet Aquarium online to learn about coastal beaches, forests, bogs, and more! Also, sea kayak guide training is now being delivered in-person, using measures to ensure participant and instructor safety in light of COVID-19. Learning opportunities for local residents include a filmmaking course for educators and a workshop series about the global Sustainable Development Goals, so we can join together to #BuildBackBetter and ensure a future where no one is left behind.
We hope you stay safe, enjoy these programs, and have a Happy World Oceans Day!
