Saskatoon’s EcoQuest Program is a grade eight class that uses nature in place of a traditional classroom. This unique outdoor education program is full of incredible students who are learning to see the world around them in new ways.
In Part Two of Episode Eight, Eric spends a very cold December day exploring Saskatoon with the 28 students that make up the EcoQuest class. The students walk more than 15 kilometres, from The Lighthouse Shelter and Saskatoon Farmer’s Market, to the Meewasin Valley river trails, learning what services make up a healthy community. They also share what skills they have learned in the program and how it’s allowing them to grow into future leaders in our community.
These students are hard working, insightful and a lot of fun to be around. They also have two fantastic teachers that put them in situations to succeed and learn on their own.
