Overview

HELP US BY BECOMING A FUNDRAISER 

You can sign up as a fundraiser yourself or link up with friends, family or co-workers in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money for children's outdoor education. We had 12 fundraisers last year. Doubling that number could double the funds we can raise. Click here to get started on your own Peer-to-Peer fundraising page.

Welcome to the Galiano Conservancy's Sixth Annual Musical Walkalong for Learning on September 1, 2018 at 1 pm, with an exciting new venue and new routes that will bring you closer to the heart of the Conservancy's work, at the Millard Learning Centre.

This magical event is a feast for the senses. It features musicians playing diverse instruments from the cello to the harp, violin and flute, amid the beautiful coastal Douglas fir forest and the ocean cove at the MLC. For the first time, you can tour our stunning forest garden and medicine garden, created with indigenous children and elders, and take part in a silent auction and a musical jam session after the walk. There will be free hand-cranked old-fashioned ice cream--a huge favourite! And Martine Paulin's delicious food and drinks available for purchase.

Most importantly, this single event raises all the bursary funds that we need for the year to bring students in need closer to nature. Without the subsidies for students, bus and teachers, many inner-city students would never experience the joys of the natural environment. No other grant program is available that will directly pay for children's trips to Galiano or the GCA nature programs for the Galiano School. 

THE MORE YOU CAN DONATE, THE MORE CHILDREN AND YOUTH CAN BENEFIT FROM HANDS-ON LEARNING IN NATURE! 

Here are some quotes from teachers whose students could not attend without support from our bursary fund: 

"Our kids are the most engaged they have been all year!"

"This was the highlight of our year! The learning and fun we experienced will be a memory our kiddos will hold on tight to. Simply incredible!" 

Lisa Trulson, Suwa'lkh School, Coquitlam, BC. 

"So hands on, fun, varied and engaging. It was such an accessible camping experience for my students."

Maia Green, Rock Heights Middle School, Victoria, BC.
