Everyday, in every country, people are talking about the environment - OUR ENVIRONMENT - and how we need to ensure that our use of natural resources is sustainable.  Why are so many people discussing this topic? Perhaps people are beginning to realize that we have the ability to determine the future habitability for us and other species.  Active solutions to environmental issues may lie with present and future technologies, but most effective will be your awareness of the impacts we have on our environments.

Using a Land-Based learning environment, students will examine local and global environmental issues such as climate change, water, soil, and air quality, urbanization, bioresource management, waste handling and disposal, land-use planning, and the impacts of agriculture and industry on the environment. While Western scientific models are addressed, the students will frame their understandings through an Indigenous knowledge perspective.

Students will examine the role of environmental policies and ethics on decision-making, and will investigate environmental science related careers. Student directed studies will lead to the development of environmental action plans that are informed by First Nations environmental philosophy and traditional Indigenous Knowledge.
