Biodiversity Boss 2021

Do you have what it takes to be a Biodiversity Boss?

Biodiversity Boss Conservation Training is a skills development program offered by Thames Talbot Land Trust. Participants learn about conservation and restoration in the context of Canada's Carolinian Zone, including hands on activities in restoration, invasive species management, and Ecological Land Classification.

Are you:

  • curious about conservation, restoration, and ecology?
  • looking for fun, hands-on, skills building experience?
  • comfortable being outside in nature, off trail, whatever the weather (and potentially with bugs)?

If so, consider joining us and earn your Biodiversity Boss badge!

What to Expect

This free program is designed to be participatory, hands-on, and fun. Participants learn about different conservation issues and take part in important restoration and conservation projects. Along the way, they learn to ID various native and invasive plant and animal species. At the end of the program, participants are presented with their Biodiversity Boss badge. 

This program is for anyone interested in learning about conservation, but is a great tool for those looking to get into the environmental field and want to learn some of the typical skills used. The classes are taught at a high school level.
