“Our Connections to Nature” is our new outreach program for schools & colleges, designed to support classroom teachers & their students studying Science, Life Sciences, Biology and the Environment.
‘Connections’ focuses on our connections to nature, and the need to conserve and protect our wildlife & their natural habitats. The outcome of the lessons intends that students reach a new understanding about their connections to nature that can encourage them to protect their own environment, and protect wildlife and their habitats.
Our new outreach program is delivered in five 45-min classroom lessons with an optional pre-booked field trip to the Mountain View Conservation Centre in spring or summer 2013.(Limited spaces available)
- Introduces key aspects of conservation; including natural resources, the food web, ecosystems and biodiversity, with a description of Mountain View’s Wildlife Conservation Programs that are working to save some of B.C.’s most endangered wildlife.
- Focuses on natural resources and their connections to us. Students will realize that both renewable and non-renewable resources available in nature are critical for our daily lives.
- Who’s eating what? A survey of the global food web with its varying types of eaters.
- Living beings depend upon one another for much more than just a meal in the food web! In this lesson, students will learn about the balance of the ecosystem and the benefits of biodiversity.
- Highlights the threat of habitat loss and the dangers that an animal faces as it grows throughout its life-cycle using a case study of Canada’s most endangered bird, the Northern Spotted Owl.
- An optional guided educational tour of the Mountain View Conservation facility including a TramTrain Tour out into our Conservatory to see our Vancouver Island Marmot facility, and other species in our Conservation Programs.
Also, an optional Wetland Adventure is available for budding Biologists, Naturalists and Environmental Scientists, weather permitting, in the spring & summer of 2013.
