The Environmental Conservation Lab provides learning opportunities both inside and outside the traditional classroom.

We are involved in developing interdisciplinary environmental education programs with a number of resource-dependent communities across Manitoba and Nunavut.  These emphasize the importance of experience-based traditional or local rural knowledge, and often incorporate the physical and life sciences.  Most of these efforts are community-focused and emphasize critical thinking and problem-based learning.
