FRSCS Sturgeon Education Program
The Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society (FRSCS) is delighted to offer new curriculum materials for our FRSCS Sturgeon Education Program. Our program is shared with over 100,000 students every year!
The Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society (FRSCS) is delighted to offer teachers, parents and students its curriculum-based FRSCS Sturgeon Education Program.
The program, delivered to elementary and secondary students and First Nations’ communities, uses the iconic White Sturgeon to teach and illustrate the rationale for environmental and ecological conservation in Canada as well as leadership and resource management. Thanks to the amazing support from donors, volunteers and leaders in schools across BC and Ontario, this program continues to grow and expand every year.
In its 15 year history, the FRSCS Sturgeon Education Program has been taught by over 1200 teachers from 1000 different schools to over 100,000 students in Grades 4 through 7, as well as secondary school students. The program is offered to schools throughout British Columbia in the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga, London and Ottawa Ontario.
Twenty copies of the award-winning book, “Tale of a Great White Fish,” are provided to each classroom that teaches the program.
“Youth play a huge role in conservation and the sustainability of our earth," said Rick Hansen, Honourary Chair of the Society. "Providing them with knowledge and skills ensures that students have the opportunity to learn about this amazing species and help find solutions for its survival."
