Bringing nature-based learning to your classrooms
The next best thing to learning in-person at Bow Habitat Station is our virtual programs.
An experienced environmental educator will take you on a journey from your classroom to the fishy and fascinating waters of Alberta.
Our programs are designed to satisfy curriculum requirements.
Swim along and discover the life cycle of rainbow trout from egg to alevin, fry, and adult in the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery.
Explore their unique characteristics, adaptations and behaviors as they grow and develop, and help identify ways that your actions can keep fish and their habitats healthy!
Dive into Alberta's waters and swim alongside fish as they navigate the murky waters of environmental change. Be ready to get a bit creative as we enter into a fin-tasy land and brainstorm imaginative ways to help fish adapt and overcome environmental changes.
In this session, students will explore the impacts of their own actions on local ecosystems and what they mean for the long-term health and survival of Alberta's fish.
