Ecosystems & Population Change in Kananaskis Country

A Kananaskis Conservation Pass is required to park your vehicle in Kananaskis and the Bow Valley.
Ice Safety: Alberta Parks does not monitor ice conditions; learn how to assess them for yourself.

Students measure the abiotic and biotic characteristics of two ecosystems. They compare the diversity of life by conducting vegetation studies, doing bird point counts, and walking transect lines. Students also make study predictions and discuss human impacts. They are encouraged to work cooperatively to gather and share data.
