Using a Land-Based learning environment, students will examine local and global environmental issues such as climate change, water, soil, and air quality, urbanization, bioresource management, waste handling and disposal, land-use planning, and the impacts of agriculture and industry on the environment. While Western scientific models are addressed, the students will frame their understandings through an Indigenous knowledge perspective.
Students will examine the role of environmental policies and ethics on decision-making, and will investigate environmental science related careers. Student directed studies will lead to the development of environmental action plans that are informed by First Nations environmental philosophy and traditional Indigenous Knowledge.
