Chris Byron

Westmount Charter School
From working with adults in the NWT to special populations on whitewater canoe trips, I have been guiding in natural settings for almost four decades. Once getting my teaching certificate, with an experiential education focus, I began to integrate my guiding experiences into the classroom. About a decade ago I create a grade 7 program called Project Earth. In it, I integrated outdoor experiential education with core curriculum. The program has matured over the years. It's intent is to graft dandelions onto orchids.
