Travelling by bus, students monitor the Elbow River from its pristine headwaters in Kananaskis Country to Calgary. Students test the water for a variety of abiotic factors and examine biotic features at key locations. Students also study the land-use impacts on this aquatic ecosystem.
This program is conducted in partnership with the Elbow River Watershed Partnership. Teachers are required to attend a brief virtual program orientation. To book this field study, please email the Program Administrator directly at: email@example.com
In addition to the field program, all registered classes are given a video link for a 30-minute pre-program video that is designed to compliment the field study and to optimize student engagement during their field study day.
