Virtual Below Zero Workshop
About this event
Where do dragonflies go when the snow flies? What keeps wood frogs from croaking in the winter? Most Canadians live with snow and ice for at least five months of the year, yet we know surprisingly little about life in frozen environments.
Join us for an interactive workshop as we explore environmental activities and curriculum-based lesson plans that will help you connect students with the natural world in all seasons.
This this a 2-part online workshop, running the same time each day.

- 2pm – 4pm PDT | 3pm – 5pm MDT | 5pm – 7pm EDT
