AltaGas provides funding to bring conservation curriculum to schools
May 18, 2016
It’s never too early to start educating children about the environment and conservation. Teaching kids from a young age about sustaining our planet will help create a generation of environmentally aware individuals who share a common goal of protecting and conserving our resources. This is exactly the mission that Earth Ranger’s aims to accomplish – educating and empowering children to start protecting the environment today.
Earth Rangers offers a school outreach program across Canada. Funded by donations, they tour elementary schools with a fun and interactive science-based curriculum highlighting a variety of conservation initiatives. AltaGas committed $5,000 to bring the program to five schools – four in Fort St John and one located in Taylor, B.C. Earth Rangers completed the Northern B.C. tour in May, reaching 1,502 children.
