As a result of the Walk in the Park project, students have developed a sense of responsibility for nature in their community. Students have been able to use Rouge Park as a space to learn stewardship skills such as water quality monitoring, conducting environmental inventories, and assessing the value and benefit of green spaces and forests in urban areas.  Their experiences in the park have already lead to several new projects. Below you will find the pieces of the curriculum and activities that were collaboratively developed among the staff  and students at DIT SEMIS staff, and community partners.
