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.
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.
For 2020/2021, the Humber Arboretum is offering Co-Curricular Record opportunities that can be completed by students who are studying on campus or who are attending remotely.
All opportunities will have connections with both the Co-Curricular Record competencies and with the Humber Learning Outcomes (HLOs).
Self-paced, available now until April 15
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 wherever you are in the world. Arboretum staff will 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.
Final 2020/2021 workshop coming up on April 7, 1 pm to 2:30 pm.
Citizen science is for everyone. Discover how participating in citizen science projects contributes to the health of both people and the planet.
To add the experience to your Co-Curricular Record you must both attend the workshop and complete follow-up activities (details provided during the workshop).
Two-semester commitment; October to April
