Program Description

What is biodiversity, and why is it important? In this on-line field trip, your students will learn about genetic, species, and habitat diversity. We will explore British Columbia’s diverse ecosystems from deserts to rainforests and learn how local plants and animals are well-adapted to our temperate rainforest ecosystem.
