What's New at the Raincoast Education Society?

by Lisa Fletcher, Tofino


The year 2008 promises to be a great year for the Raincoast Education Society! As of January 1st, the res has a new home in the Clayoquot Field Station at Tofino Botanical Gardens. This move brings new opportunities for the res to deliver education programs to visiting school groups at the Field Station, assist visiting researchers, and bring people closer in touch with the Tofino Mudflats Wildlife Management Area.
New to the Pacific Rim? Maybe you haven't heard about the Raincoast Education Society...

The Raincoast Education Society, incorporated in 2000, is a charitable society whose mission it is to help shape an environmentally sound future for the Clayoquot and Barkley Sound region through education and community stewardship. Based in Tofino but active throughout the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve region (from Macoah to Hot Springs Cove), the Raincoast Education Society delivers school and summer youth programs about natural and cultural history in the Central Region Nuu-chah-nulth communities as well as in Tofino and Ucluelet.

The Raincoast Education Society also hosts interpretive walks and slideshows and delivers stewardship initiatives oriented toward youth and adults, such as the Tofino Mudflats Stewardship Program.

Over the past several years, the Raincoast Education Society has developed innovative new programs, including the Raincoast Host program to help train hospitality workers to answer visitors' questions about the Pacific Rim, and the Nuu-chah-nulth Raincoast Explorers Program, a summer program for Nuu-chah-nulth youth delivered in Nuu-chah-nulth communities.

Look for new and expanded Raincoast Education Society programs throughout 2008! To join our "Natural History List" and be notified of upcoming events, please send an email to res@island.net.
