How a group of Dal educators has transformed the outdoors into a classroom

How a group of Dal educators has transformed the outdoors into a classroom.  The Biodiversity Working Group uses a blend of nature and technology to give a unique level of learning to students of both the Dalhousie Halifax campus, as well as the Truro campus. Learning from the green areas on campus, students study native plants and insects with a community-driven biodiversity app. The group has long term hopes to spur wider interest among students in the field of “urban biodiversity.”
