Field Trips & Events
We understand that this pandemic has greatly affected our community. There is so much uncertainty in our worlds right now and this will certainly bring about a whole new set of changes, challenges and opportunities. As part of our commitment to provide interpretive guides and members of this community access to ongoing learning opportunities, we have put together a series of professional development programs free of charge or at highly reduced rates for members in good standing. This list will be updated regularly over the next few months as we are committed to offer you as much as we can during this difficult time.
Please note: these sessions have limited space available, so please contact us if you find yourself unable to attend an event you have registered for. We want to offer these sessions to as many people as possible, and knowing you can no longer attend helps us open your place up to someone on our waiting list (our waiting lists are growing daily).
