Discover Grasslands programs are mobile and come directly to your classroom. Some field programs are also available at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park. Let us introduce your class to the diverse world of Alberta’s native grasslands! Together, we’ll find answers to a number of questions.
- What makes up a grassland?
- What is fescue and why is it important?
- What life does a grassland support?
- Why are our grasslands at risk?
- What is being done to rehabilitate them?
Through hands-on exploration, students discover the secrets hidden within Alberta’s grasslands. They leave armed with a completed workbook and the knowledge to act as stewards for our grasslands.
