Led by Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) graduate students at Dalhousie University, Diversity of Nature (DoN) is a scientific outreach organization dedicated to increasing BIPOC representation in the natural sciences.

DoN's program consists of an annual ecological field expedition and year-round workshops (including science panels, in-school workshops, and outdoor day excursions). Our programming is tailored to BIPOC students across Nova Scotia.

All of our programming is free of charge

To our knowledge, DoN is the only STEM outreach program in Canada run by BIPOC graduate students and tailored to BIPOC youth!
