Wild in the City

Wild in the City


Curriculum Connections:

  • Science & Technology - Understanding Life Systems;
  • Mathematics - Data Management and Probability

Character Development:

  • program emphasizes respect, responsibility, teamwork and co-operation


Spend a “day of diversity” in High Park - a place that is “Wild in the City” OR visit a naturalized area closer to your school.  By participating in carefully structured investigative and experiential activities in both terrestrial (meadow and forest) and aquatic (pond) habitats, students gain first hand knowledge of the challenges of studying biodiversity and what can happen when an invasive species is introduced. NOTE: when visiting local green spaces, programs may not include pond study.

The result:

  • a more personal understanding of the complexity of biodiversity and how fast an invasive species can spread
  • understanding the role we all play as environmental stewards in this process.
Please Note: the terrain in High Park may be challenging for students in wheelchairs; contact TUSC for more information
