Park School of Baltimore
The Park School’s Arctic partnership is dedicated to monitoring the permafrost in Hudson Bay Lowlands and its response to climate change. In addition to conducting field research, the partnership schools discuss social justice issues and policy implications for those living in the North. Institutions and organizations involved in the partnership include Kelvin High School, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Junior Rangers, Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, Parks Canada, Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, and the University of Manitoba Biology Department, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
The goal of this partnership is to continue exploring the Churchill region as a unified team of three distinct groups: aboriginal students and teachers, Winnipeg students and teachers, and Park students and teachers. Together they are gathering data and solving problems related to one of the most important issues in the North, climate change. You can read about the students’ experiences on their blog here.
