Since 2004, Beyond Recycling has been taught in schools in Jaffray, Fernie, Inveremere, Kimberley, Jaffray, Erickson, Creston, Castlegar, Blewett, Kaslo, Trail, New Denver, Salmo, Balfour, Winlaw and Nelson.

The range of activities was impressive – role play, field trips, data collection, public speaking, ownership, multimedia, writing, opinion, creative outlets, and more all tied in specifically with goals we already were fusing on in a school setting. A must have!
