Talking About Biodiversity
Saturday, December 1 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 6 - 12
How can humans conserve and use biodiversity in a sustainable way? This is a question of global importance. Learn about the World Wide Views on Biodiversity project that engages thousands of citizens throughout the world in a discussion about biodiversity issues. Try out several activities that support learning about biodiversity. These include a biodiversity-themed tour of the Museum and biodiversity quests for your own neighborhood or schoolyard. Then, participate in a forum designed to get you talking about connections between biodiversity and policy. Materials will be made available to support bringing this discussion to your students. This workshop is part of our Bread Club Gathering series.
