The Saturna Ecological Education Centre (SEEC) is an experiential, place-based ecological learning centre on beautiful Saturna Island, British Columbia, suitable for a student’s grade 9, 10, 11, or 12 school year.

During the full school year, our high school students live and learn in funky little cabins within the alder forest of Haggis Farm. This unique, locally-designed facility is totally off-the-grid and powered by our own micro-hydro and solar power systems. It features two six-bunk cabins (one for each gender), washroom huts, showers, a caretaker’s cabin and a main multi-purpose building that serves as a kitchen, dining hall, classroom and meeting area. Our students learn how to live and work together to look after the site and take responsibility for their own comforts and needs by chopping wood, making fires in the wood stove, cooking, cleaning, maintaining the facilities, and working on legacy projects that add new features to the Hollow, our rope challenge course, disc golf course, brick walkways, rock garden landscaping and currently the eating patio is underway.
