Tofino is for relaxation, invigoration... and for learning opportunities.  Immersion in nature is the way we learn here!  Participate in hands-on workshops, classes, field courses and more.  

The Clayoquot Biosphere Trust has compiled the Regional Education Asset Inventory which provides an overview of the area and is an excellent starting point for planning an educational trip.  This document includes information on getting to the area and the resources available here on the westcoast of Vancouver Island which include the Raincoat Education Society.

From the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust:
We recognize that the success of your visit depends on finding the right people and places to bring your program to life.  The CBT is available to offer support for educational programs, field trips and scientific research.  We can offer assistance finding meeting spaces, linking with local instructors, accessing local data and archives. Find more valuable information by visiting the  Clayoquot Biosphere Trust.

From the Raincoast Education Society:
The goal of our educational programs is to provide residents and visitors of the Clayoquot and Barkley Sound region with high-quality learning opportunities about the environmental and cultural history of the region. Our programs vary throughout the season as well as by group. During the school year, we deliver a range of educational programs for students K -12, with a primary focus on outdoor-based learning. Our summer camps and young naturalists programs offer outdoor education programs for local and visiting youth in the summer months (July & August). In addition to our youth programs, we offer guided nature walks during the summer months, or by request year-round. We are also pleased to host a range of guest lectures as part of our fall/winter speaker series.  Discover all the Raincoat Education Society offers.
