This Project was part of the Bio 20 Unit A, B and C of the Alberta curriculum: learning about energy flow, nutrient cycling, photosynthesis and ecosystem structure. This Ranch Reclamation Project deals with all four of these themes with a hands on Reclamation application project. Civic responsibility was embedded in the project as the students worked with a local Riparian expert to support a local rancher in a spring and fall Riparian project to reclaim the banks of the Grand Valley creek by planting willows.
