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 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 species. At the end of the program, participants are presented with their Biodiversity Boss badge.

The Biodiversity Boss program will be set up as two webinars and a full day of hands-on skills building. The webinars will include lectures on Restoration Ecology and Invasive Species.
