FIELD TRIPS AREN’T JUST FOR KIDS. Let us show you why.

Canada's Rocky Mountains are beautiful, but they also form a landscape of powerful stories.

See the eagle? It’s the most remarkable thing. A forest fire burned its habitat, including the tree housing its nest. But you won’t believe it: the flames stopped just short of the nest and the eagle fledglings inside. The eagles not only survived, but the fire revived their home, helping them thrive like never before.

WE WANT YOU TO EXPERIENCE THE PEAKS AND PIQUE YOUR CURIOSITY.

This is more than an incredible view – it’s our shared biodiversity. The lake? It’s actually a river. The sand? It forms the only sand dune ecosystem in the Canadian Rockies. What creatures does it sustain? How are we tackling biodiversity in Canada? What challenges remain?

We will create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you – and one that will help bring nature to life in your classroom.

Field Trips, Reimagined


A professional development adventure - with a purpose.

Full and multi-day experiences are tailored for each educators’ needs, with every dollar from every trip supporting Nature Labs – a digital classroom that will help you take what you’ve learned in the field and put it to work in your school.

The Details

You’re visiting Canada’s Rocky Mountains and you can’t wait to explore one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. But generic bus tours aren’t for you. Interpretive walks? Nice, yet they just scratch the surface. Campfire lectures? They’re not an experience.

 

Ghost Bear Institute’s Field Trips are designed to blend wonder and adventure with immersive learning through the lens of your passion. 

 

This unique, innovative and upbeat professional development opportunity for teachers of all grades aims to help you learn, explore and develop new tools for the classroom. We design each field trip around your timeline and your needs, ensuring that your trip to the Rocky Mountains is both fun and educational.

 

Through guided hikes, wildlife observation and field-based conversations, we will work to make your experience relevant to your discipline and help you build your own story-driven content to be used with your students.

 

Led by an accomplished educator, Jill Cooper, and Time Magazine’s Hero for the Planet, Simon Jackson, these award-winning storytellers will lead your journey into the Rockies, building on a combined 35 years of working with wildlife, in the landscape, and at the intersection of education and biodiversity.

 

And unlike most field courses, this one has an added benefit: every dollar from every field trip supports the development of Nature Labs – a program that will provide you with an integrated platform through which to apply what you’ve learned to the classes you teach.
