2021-2022 The Backyard, École Percy Pegler School, Okotoks
Students at École Percy Pegler School have noticed a lack of biodiversity in their schoolyard and want to create a welcoming space for native animals and for themselves. Through the Student Action challenge, students will be creating a small forest ecosystem. With the support of the town’s urban forester, students will be planting and caring for trees. These trees will serve as a starting point for student inquiry and learning around the importance of forests in Alberta.
