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. 

 

CCR Opportunities at the Humber Arboretum, 2020/2021

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).

The Humber Arboretum iNaturalist Student Challenge

Self-paced challenge runs May 1 - 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. Your observations will be collected with those of other students in an iNaturalist project and Arboretum staff will help you identify and learn about the plants and animals everyone finds. 

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