Did you know that scientists come to Sault Ste. Marie from all over the world to study the environment? Many of them work in the buildings you see around you.
This provincial and federal government research hub attracts many local, national, and international scientists focusing on environmental management. This includes ecosystems, insects, plants, invasive species, climate change, forests, and diseases. Their discoveries are used across Canada and around the world.
Can You Draw?
Draw yourself as a scientist in a lab. If you could study any plant or animal, what would you choose? Why?
Can you name a nearby tree? Will it shed its leaves in the winter?
Barbara Bluejay says: Point to the tallest tree you can see. Imagine what the view is like from the top.
