The Coastal Resilience Education Toolkit is an interactive learning guide that consists of seven activities, all built on the idea that experiential learning is the best way to build a relationship between students and the urban marine environment surrounding them. These activities, full of games, experiments, and pre-recorded content, can work in-sequence with one another, or stand on their own, depending on the needs and abilities of your students. Each lesson plan consists of an overview of the activity, list of materials, detailed procedures, post-activity recommendations for further learning, and background for educators.
Have you ever seen a bat on one of your adventures? Bats in North America are threatened by a lethal disease called White-nose Syndrome (WNS). Millions of bats have died in eastern North America and the disease has now been found in the west. The first step in protecting bats against WNS is knowing where they live. But, because many bats roost in cracks in cliffs or in boulder fields, they can be tough to find! Outdoor enthusiasts, like climbers, scramblers, canyoneers and hikers can help bat experts and wildlife managers by leaving bats alone and reporting bat sightings.
