Co-Curricular Record Certified Learning at the Humber Arboretum

Humber College and University of Guelph-Humber students have the opportunity to have their participation in Humber Arboretum educational events acknowledged on the formal CCR transcript provided by their school.

What is a Co-Curricular Record?

Provided to students by Humber College or the University of Guelph-Humber, the Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is a formal record of a student's skill development that has taken place outside of the classroom. This additional transcript is intended to support your future applications for employment or other opportunities.

The Humber Arboretum iNaturalist Student Challenge


Read up on citizen science, watch a video, and create a free account on the iNaturalist citizen science website or free app to make 30 high-quality observations of wild organisms within the Humber Arboretum. Your observations will be automatically collected within the Humber Arboretum Atlas project on iNaturalist, and Humber Arboretum staff will comment to help you identify and learn about the plants and animals you find. 

Get outside and explore while you develop your (eco)system thinking, your analytical skills, and more.

Volunteer Nature Game Hosts

Recruiting now.

The Centre for Urban Ecology in the Humber Arboretum has a collection of board games and card games that have ecological concepts embedded in the gameplay. Volunteer Nature Game Hosts learn how to play each of the games, along with learning a few basic facts about how the games connect to local nature and about the Arboretum itself. The Host team then helps plan and facilitate game events for other students and the local community.
