Plants and their Ecosystems

Ancient forest OrbExplore the dynamic forest ecosystems of northwest BC, from the lush, dense coastal forests, to the drier, cooler ecosystems of the interior plateau.

Along the way you will develop your skills in plant biology and investigate a diversity of ecosystems including temperate rainforest, boreal forest, alpine, wetlands, estuaries, and coastal habitats. As a project-based field school, you will work as a team to describe and compare the ecology of each major ecosystem visited.
