A talented local Invasive Species Council of BC youth volunteer, Damian Assadi, has created a series of educational videos that use a stewardship framework to guide exploration of an urban park.

This virtual outdoor classroom connects students with nature through short, fun lessons about native species. Check out all the "Our One Hectare Backyard" videos here. This series is suitable for elementary (Episodes 1-3) and high-school (episodes 4-6) students, and will add interest to any curriculum.
