BALANCED STORYTELLING. REAL WORLD CONNECTIONS. CURATED RESOURCES.

Ghost Bear Institute

Our Mission

Building on the legacy of the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition’s two-decade journey that helped bridge societal divides to save Canada’s Kermode bear, the Ghost Bear Institute seeks to inspire, educate and spark a new generation to foster a better balance between people and nature through our signature project, Nature Labs.

The Ghost Bear Institute was founded exclusively to be the non profit incubator of Nature Labs.

What is Nature Labs? Nature Labs is a virtual high school textbook. Built on a foundation of storytelling, we provide teachers with plug-and-play, inquiry-based resources to help students use nature as a real-world example of class lessons in order to advance nature literacy.
