About Our Auction
EPIC is a community-created, nature-based K-3 blended distributed learning (DL) centre located in the woods and on the coastlines of Saanich, BC. We are excited to be in our second year of caring for the hearts of learners through nature connection and play in our natural world.
EPIC is looking to raise funds to support our program. We anticipate raising enough funds to launch a new bursary!
Thank you so much for helping learners get their Vitamin “N” for nature! It helps them stay grounded. (The good kind of grounded!) We're grateful to spend school days connecting with our community, the living world and ourselves.
We know you’re also nature-lovin’ and believe in the power of community. Please bid!
