Day Camps 2021
We ran two day camps during August 2021, where students took part in three days of immersive ecological experiences. Activities included identifying fungi and plants, using an underwater drone to discover the marine environment, learning about Mi'kma'ki culture and science and more!
Undergraduate student Aaron Judah led this wonderful exploration of fish form, function, and diversity! We received a generous donation of fish (and a couple of squid!) from Amos & Andy Fisheries Ltd.
In June 2021, diver extraordinare Hunter Stevens led a snorkeling expedition for BIPOC youth. Students used real diving gear to explore Cranberry Cove's marine environment. Safety was facilitated with dive supervision by Matt Mar. Nicolas Winkler also took some amazing underwater photographs!
We have given numerous webinars on Scientific Illustration. Students learned about the importance and history of scientific illustration. So far, students have enjoyed our "Seeing Yourself In Nature", which invite students to create a self-portrait surrounded by plants and animals that inspire them!
