A Plan to Save Grasslands
This intensive research activity challenges students to discover the variety of ecosystem services that grasslands provide and to evaluate how these services are impacted by human activity. Students will then design and present a sustainable, evidence-based plan to help restore grassland biodiversity. This activity is geared towards students in grade 6-8.

The Endangereds follows a group of highly unlikely bedfellow animal characters as they adventure out to save one of their own. The story weaves in educational environmental components like the impacts that climate change and human-wildlife conflict have on polar bears and their habitat – along with more hopeful stories about black-footed ferret reintroduction.
