Fragile Inheritance will again be exploring and revisiting places across Canada in October of 2022.
We invite students and their teachers to join in the survey of their local biodiversity along our route.
The Teachers Guide to Canada's Biodiversity will help to prepare your class for making their own natural history observations to contribute to the Fragile Inheritance database. Participants from Grades 4 to 12 will learn to:
OBJECTIVE: Empower citizens of all ages to contribute to scientific knowledge of species,
ecology, biodiversity, and the environment.
ACHIEVEMENT: Students learn to observe carefully and to achieve the consistency of data gathering required for scientific records while at the same time observing, writing, and drawing at their own level of proficiency.
Dr Fred Schueler will also give talks and lead discussions with interested students or teachers on topics important to the study of biodiversity:
The studies of ecology, biodiversity, and the environment are not accomplished indoors. We
have urgent need of curious minds, perceptive eyes, ears, fingers, noses, and diligent
pencils out here in the real world. Participate in onsite nature interpretation on the
ground and in the field as we all write, draw, paint, and talk about our discoveries.
