Program Description & Details

Our award-winning curriculum engages and stimulates students to connect the history of a young German immigrant family in Vancouver (between1880s-1920s) to their own and to reflect on immigration and social and cultural differences. The visit is split into 3 parts: architectural drawing (house and neighborhood), a tour of the house (during which children learn about the history of a family and of the city of Vancouver), and the discovery of unusual historical artifacts. This curriculum is particularly geared towards Grade 5 students, but can be easily adapted or used for other grades.

Program Description & Details

Join us on an interactive nature walk through one of the world’s most ecologically unique ecosystems: Burns Bog!

What to Expect:

Your students will walk the trails and boardwalks of Burns Bog at the Delta Nature reserve, learning how to make ecological observations about their surroundings. They will be guided in how to use scientific reasoning in combination with our "eco-clues" to learn more about our natural environment.

Through inquiry and observation, students will discover the 3 main characteristics that define a Bog as being unique from a forest or a stream, or any other type of wetland ecosystem.

Students are guided to respectfully collect and identify plant samples as a part of our "scavenger hunt." They will hear stories of how resources in Burns Bog were traditionally used by local First Nations, and how our changing views of peatlands has left Burns Bog with a rich history of land-use practices, with both good and bad consequences for our environment.

They will discover how Burns Bog provides a home for many rare and endangered species, and how a healthy ecosystem support can support a strong food web. They will find out how different animals use physical and behavioral adaptations to help them survive in Burns Bog and the Delta Nature Reserve.

Your students will leave with an understanding of why we fight to save our peatlands, and how Burns Bog works hard to provide for both animals and people.

We want students to fall in love with Nature and with Burns Bog. We know that they won't protect what you don't love, and they can't love what they don't know. Help your students discover Burns Bog today!

​Burns Bog Field Trips address grade-specific curricular competencies such as:

  • Plants and Animals
  • Habitats and Ecosystems
  • Biodiversity and Species at Risk
  • Natural Resources and First Nations
  • Threats and Stewardship

All tours can be customized to meet the needs of your class.

Rejoignez-nous sur une randonnée interactive dans l’un des écosystèmes les plus uniques du monde: Burns Bog!

À quoi vous attendre:

Vos élèves  marcheront sur les pistes et les trottoirs en bois de Burns Bog dans le Delta Nature Reserve, en apprenant comment faire des observations écologiques à propos de leur environnement. Nos guides les aideront à utiliser le raisonnement scientifique et les indices écologiques pour apprendre plus  à propos de notre environnement naturel.

Par leurs observations, vos élèves vont découvrir les trois caractéristiques qui rendent les tourbières uniques des forêts, des ruisseaux, ou des autres types de zones humides.

Nos guides aideront vos élèves à ramasser et à identifier les échantillons de plantes pendant notre « chasse au trésor ». Vos élèves vont entendre des histoires de comment les Premières Nations ont utilisé les ressources de Burns Bog, et aussi de comment nos perspectives concernant les tourbières ont changé au cours de l’histoire, et de l’influence positive et négative de ces perspectives sur l’environnement.

Ils découvriront comment Burns Bog abrite beaucoup d’espèces rares et en voie d’extinction, et comment un écosystème sain peut soutenir un réseau trophique fort. Ils apprendront comment les animaux différents utilisent  les adaptations physiques et comportementales pour les aider à survivre dans Burns Bog et le Delta Nature Reserve.

Vos élèves partiront avec la connaissance à propos de pourquoi nous luttons pour sauver les tourbières, et de l’importance des tourbières pour les animaux et les êtres humains.

Nous voulons que vos élèves tombent amoureux de la nature et de Burns Bog. Nous savons qu’ils ne préserveront pas ce qu’ils n’aiment pas, et qu’ils ne peuvent pas aimer ce qu’ils ne connaissent pas.

Les excursions de Burns Bog répondent aux compétences disciplinaires de chaque année, telles que :

  • Les plantes et les animaux
  • Les habitats et les écosystèmes
  • La biodiversité et les espèces en péril
  • Les ressources naturelles et les Premières Nations
  • Les menaces et l’intendance de l’environnement

Toutes les visites peuvent être personnalisées à satisfaire les besoins de votre classe.
