Cedar Coast Field Station

Location:  Vargus Island, Tofino, BC

Booking Spring 2020priority booking deadline is November 30th, 2019.  

Cedar Coast Field Station programs provide an opportunity for learners to develop a more ecologically grounded perspective directly through curriculum, and indirectly through place-based experiential learning. We believe fostering an ecological perspective, for all ages, is of great importance since education influences attitude, and attitude reveals the environmental policies we stand by. 

We encourage educators of all disciplines to run programs through the Cedar Coast Field Station and contribute to a creative, interdisciplinary learning environment.
