For Educators

Engaging people of all ages is key to protecting BC’s amazing biodiversity by preventing the spread of invasive species.

ISCBC’s education resources support educators and students in environmental learning, outdoor field experiences and conservation in their communities. Invasive species, unlike many large-scale environmental issues, are something that youth can actually do something about, in a hands-on, experiential way! The following resources provide a range of activities that will engage your students, help them investigate invasive species and their impacts and take action to prevent their spread. The activities align well with BC’s prescribed curriculum and offer some great project-based learning opportunities.
