Natural Resources

Natural Resources 10 (1411)

This introductory program will examine the management and conservation of the environment at the local, provincial and national levels. In addition, you will develop an understanding of how humans interact and impact our environment. You will investigate the concepts of stewardship, sustainability, biodiversity and plant growth and development. Prerequisite: None 

Natural Resources 20/30 (2411/3411)

This program will expand on the stewardship principles introduced in the previous course but will continue the discussion on sustainability issues including a study of renewable and non-renewable energy sources and the sustainable development of our environments. The program will also continue the work in greenhouse management and plant growth and production. Prerequisite: None


Outdoor Pursuits

Outdoor Pursuits is a course for students with an interest in outdoor activities, and the willingness to spend time in the wilderness. Grade 11 or Grade 12 students have registration priority; however, if spots are available, grade 10 students may submit an application to the Outdoor Pursuits teacher for early admission. *It essential to note that this series of courses can only be taken once during a high school student’s career. Due to the potential of missing school while on wilderness excursions, choosing a year or semester that the student anticipates having an easier academic course load is helpful to success in Outdoor Pursuits.* Students registering for the Natural Sciences stream of courses will be eligible to participate concurrently in Outdoor Pursuits credits if desired.

Outdoor Pursuits 10/20/30 (1470/2470/3470)

Outdoor Pursuits is a 5 – 6 credit CTS course designed for students interested in exploring human powered activities. Students will gain practical wilderness experience and environmental awareness along with an opportunity to participate in day and overnight excursions. Students will receive certification in Wilderness First Aid. Prerequisite: None

RT @mustardseedyyc: Today @CrescentCowboys student Alex and his friends came by The Mustard Seed with bags full of @McDonaldsCanada sandwiches to hand out to those experiencing homelessness!
