The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation strongly believes education is a critical component to conservation and with that in mind HCTF offers and supports education programs, grants, learning resources, and other education initiatives through our in-house HCTF Education program.

Our goal is to build environmental literacy with educators and youth by engaging them in place-based learning, hands-on experiences connections to conservation in their community. HCTF Education supports educator and youth involvement in learning about BC’s biodiversity through the following program areas:

  • WildBC: Delivers workshops and school programs delivered by our province-wide network of WildBC Facilitators;
  • GO Grants: Available to B.C.’s K-12 school to cover the cost of transportation, project materials and programs to get students outdoors learning and experiencing B.C.’s biodiversity;
  • Leap Grants: Project-based grants of up to $5000 for BC high schools, specifically, science courses or courses with a focus on environmental learning or career course focused on providing students with opportunities in environmental/conservation sciences.
