tentative schedule

Alberta is a diverse landscape that is home to not only a variety of wildlife species but also many human uses of our natural resources.


Join Inside Education and a group of like-minded educators from across Alberta to explore the interaction between the wildlife of our boreal region and our landscape use.


During this program, you will hear from scientists, local industry, conservation as well as local indigenous groups to gain knowledge and better understand the state of Alberta’s species-at-risk. You will visit industry – including a tour of the oils sands – and research sites, as well as key habitats to learn about the biology and ecology of the region’s wildlife.

You will have the opportunity to take part in discussions with colleagues and professionals about the social, economic and environmental considerations of managing our province’s wildlife. The program will wrap-up with a workshop to help you bring the information back to your students and classroom in a meaningful manner!

This program is suitable for all K-12 teachers with an interest in bringing environmental topics to their lessons in science, social studies, careers, and more! The program will start and end in Edmonton and is open to all teachers in western Canada.
