Winter Wildlife Brochure Developed by U of A students
The Edmonton and Area Land Trust is pleased to have worked with many students at the University of Alberta through the Community Service Learning program. Several Education students took part in EALT projects in the fall 2012 semester, and have helped create some great educational materials.

One group created a brochure about wildlife in winter that can be used by anyone to learn about tracking wildlife. Using photos and descriptions, this brochure provides a glimpse of which animals are out and about during the cold of winter. Click here to download the brochure and use it on your next outing.
EALT works to share the benefits of natural areas, and we want you to know about them too! Check out this presentation from another student group that details how beneficial nature really is.
We are pleased that this partnership with the University of Alberta has worked well to develop experience for the students, and tangible educational materials for EALT. We are always interested in connecting with students, volunteers and organizations to work on projects that have mutual benefits. Not only does this provide EALT with resources that we need and can share, but it also gives practical applications for students to learn and contribute to EALT’s important work.
If this kind of collaboration would interest your group, contact Rebecca at email@example.com or 780-850-3270.
