Citizen Science to Understand Local Biodiversity
Nancy Pollard, Manachaban School, Grade 8
This class used Project WILD (Wisdom Inquiry Learning Doing) for many experiential outdoor environmental education activities. The project overview and videos showcase two of these activities - students engaging in citizen science by collecting biodiversity data for the Cochrane Ecological Institute and the Swift Fox enclosure; and then learning about invasive species and participating in a Weed Pull at Cochrane Ranch.
