A fun way to introduce outdoor adventure skills!The first Be Fit For Life centre emerged in 1982 as a fitness resource centre at the University of Alberta’s Provincial Fitness Unit, later growing into a Network of Centres embedded in Colleges and Universities across Alberta, bridging the work of the institutions with the community at large. The Network has grown and evolved since it’s inception, remaining committed to the health and wellness of Albertans. A shift in focus to physical literacy development as a vehicle for health and well-being has opened doors for a coordinated approach for change, bringing new stakeholders from education, health, sport and recreation sectors to the table with a shared vision of Albertans who are confident, competent and motivated to engage in physical activity for life.
The Nature Sketch Program, a Bateman Foundation initiative, aims to inspire observation and appreciation of the natural world using a pencil and a sketchbook. Nature Sketch participants learn about the wildlife and habitat of local flora and fauna in the world around them! The Bateman Foundation believes in the power of “noticing nature”. We inspire a lasting relationship with nature through the lens of art. The pencil becomes the tool that draws a new generation into the magic of nature, recording all its beauty on paper and demonstrating that each of us are vitally connected to our natural environment.
