Program Description

British Columbia is rich in plants, animals, and habitats! This program explores the concept of biodiversity with a fun indoor introduction, followed by a hands-on outdoor field study. By exploring microhabitats in the park, students gain an appreciation for the biodiversity of the rainforest and discover how different animals and plants survive in this wet and diverse environment.
