New this year we are introducing our Wetlands Day! Come join us at the park and experience our programs.
Wetlands and the West
Discover the history and significance wetlands ecosystems played in the settlement of the West and the vital function they perform today. Students are introduced to the flow of water from precipitation to its entrance to the water table and some of the local flora and fauna found along the way. Your class will investigate invertebrate life by pond-dipping in our own Bissett Wetlands. The program continues in the Newalta Learning Labs, adding another dimension to the discussion on diversity and adaptation with a hands-on "Build a Bug" activity, where the students create their own aquatic creatures.
Explorers and Ecosystems
This day long program offers outdoor exploration at the Bissett Wetlands and classroom water quality testing at our indoor learning lab. Students will explore the historical and cultural context of Alberta's watersheds. They will discover how human perspectives about ecology have changed over time. Students will learn the interconnected aspects of our environment and be able to put them into a social and scientific context.
Each program is a full day and will be held in classrooms A and B at Gasoline Alley Museum. Each program will have a limit of 25 participants. Register early to ensure your spot.
