Living With Wildlife

We have an exciting new program for your classroom!
WILDNorth is offering an in-school presentation with a live wild animal ambassador; Wild Rose the Porcupine!

This is a 45 minute presentation about living with the wild animals we share spaces with, and how to be an advocate for wildlife in the community (especially those animals that have a bit of a “bad” reputation!), featuring an educational porcupine.
Participants can have a once in a lifetime opportunity to safely see a porcupine right before their eyes!
Cost:
$150 per classroom or small group (up to 35 participants) + *mileage
$300 per assembly-style or large group (35+ participants) + *mileage
Bookings can be made for Tuesdays and Thursdays
E-mail education@wildnorth.ca to inquire – availability is limited!
** Visits with Wild Rose and exact presentation style are subject to changes based on how she’s feeling that day!
NEW
Can’t commit to a full presentation with Wild Rose? We’re now offering Visits with Wild Rose! Visits are 20 – 30 minutes long (depending on Wild Rose) and will focus on Wild Rose’s story, and information about porcupines.
$125 per classroom or small group (up to 35 participants) + * mileage
$250 per assembly-style or large group (35+ participants) + *mileage
