Cold Regions Eco-Hydrology Field Course
Scotty Creek Research Station
11-18 March, 2017
The Cold Regions Research Centre (CRRC) at Wilfrid Laurier University (https://coldregions.ca) held a 10-day field-based course on the physical principles of cold regions eco-hydrology and water resources for high school students in the NWT. This course counts as a High School credit and as a credit toward the Environment and Natural Resources Technology Program (ENRTP) of Aurora College.
Students worked closely with a variety of instructors including scientists, environmental educators, on-site researchers and Dehcho Elders. The focus is on learning about the land and water during winter from both scientific and traditional aboriginal perspectives.
It was a rewarding experience for both the students and the instructors.
