Available at High Park OR your local green space. By participating in structured investigative and experiential activities in meadow, forest and aquatic habitats, students study interactions within the environment, and identify factors that affect the balance between different components of an ecosystem. A particular emphasis is placed on understanding the interactions between and among biotic and abiotic elements in the environment and demonstrating an understanding of an ecosystem as a system of interactions between living organisms and their environment.
NOTE: when visiting local green spaces, programs may not include pond study.

The result:

  • a more personal understanding of the complexity of ecosystems
