Clarity out of Mud: Rundle College Students Teach ESRD A Lesson in Responsible Management
October 31, 2012
Wildlands Advocate Article, October 2012, by Sean Nichols. Grade seven students from Rundle College Junior High School designed wetland simulation projects in a quest to understand the impacts of OHV use in riparian areas. They followed up with voicing their concerns to media and ESRD.
“The Calgary Herald ran a story, “Are you drinking McLean Creek mud?” that highlighted a project done by teacher Beverley Ross’ grade seven class at Calgary’s Rundle College Junior High school. Her students were inspired by an article by Adam Driedzic of the Environmental Law Centre (see Adam’s story on motorized recreation in the April 2012 issue of WLA for a discussion of related issues) explaining how OHV misuse damages riparian areas. Like all good scientists, the class decided to find out the truth for themselves.”
