Grade 7 - Caribou in Yukon

Fall/Winter Season: Up to 26 Students (1 class)
Full Day Program (5 hour)
9:30am to 2:30pm

Caribou are phenomenally well adapted to the challenge of living in northern landscapes. This full day program explores how caribou have come to be an iconic Yukon species, but how those very traits put their future at risk. Through guided observation, experiential games, hands-on props and stories, students explore the fragile past and future of Caribou in the Yukon.
