Trans Canada Trail BioKit

Discover Canada's biodiversity from coast to coast to coast with the new Trans Canada Trail BioKit!

The Trans Canada Trail BioKit offers endless opportunities to learn about and explore Canada’s biodiversity. Bring the family and experience the natural wonders waiting to be discovered along the world's longest and grandest network of trails!

This cross-Canada BioKit is the result of a collaborative effort by the Biosphère, Environment Museum and the Trans Canada Trail. It offers fun, interactive activities that will enrich your experience and help you learn about the environment along the Trans Canada Trail.

Download and print the Trans Canada Trail BioKit and take off on an adventure! Or access the HTML version of the BioKit HERE.

Resources for Educators

Teachers, youth group leaders, trail and conservation area guides, and other interested groups can order multiple copies of the Trans Canada Trail BioKit free of charge. Simply fill out the order form and return it to us by fax or email.

Visit the Educators' Zone for classroom activities to prepare for a BioKit adventure and discussion topics after students return from their biodiversity investigation.

It can be difficult to keep students' attention on the task at hand when temperatures rise and the end of the school year is in sight. With that in mind, we humbly suggest the Trans Canada Trail BioKit as an opportunity to take learning outdoors!
