Our Adventures

Study boreal forest ecology as you paddle through some of the world's most beautiful northern lakes. Immerse yourself in the natural history of the plains bison as you hike along side them in their historic grasslands.  Experience ecological sustainability as you work along side some of our province's most innovative thinkers and discover the secrets of Saskatoon's past, present, and future through our study of urban geography. 

You will discover a new level of confidence as you are engaged in a number of integrated research projects that lead to five regular Grade 11 credits in Environmental Science 20, English Language Arts 20, Geography 20, Physical Education 20, and an online credit of your choice.
