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

Biodiversity Boss Youth 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 species-at-risk monitoring.

Are you:

  • a high school, college, or university student, or a recent graduate?
  • intending to pursue a career in conservation, ecology, natural resources management, or another similar field?
  • looking for fun, hands-on, skills building experience in conservation and restoration?
  • 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

The program is designed to be participatory, hands-on, and fun! It consists of a mixture of field trips and lectures. 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 species. At the end of the program, participants are presented with their Biodiversity Boss badge!

This program is free for participants due to generous support from Trojan UV Technologies and the London Community Foundation.

Program dates for Spring 2019 will be announced in the new year.
