Rainforests and Coastal Communities

Gain knowledge of both geography and ecology while being immersed in one of the most ecologically and environmentally diverse places on earth.

Our instructional team will take you into the world's largest pristine temperate rainforest, visit glacial landscapes and anthropological sites, and explore rivers and oceans along the way. The rich history of First Nation culture in this region will also be explored.

Designed as a unique two-week experiential adventure for high school students, this field school is an opportunity to gain the personal and educational experience of university in an applied outdoor setting.

Coast Mountain College has been a leader in developing place-based experiential learning and has been delivering upper level University Credit field schools in this region for over 15 years. We are now opening up this opportunity to senior level high-school students and recent high-school graduates.

Credits from this field school are transferable to all universities in BC. You may also be eligible to use those credits as electives (dual-credit) towards your high school diploma.
