Edmonton urban BioKit

Edmonton Urban BioKit cover

Celebrate biodiversity in all its forms!

What plant has the ability to purify water? What organism can indicate air quality? Why are some leaves large and flat and others are waxy? Find the answers to all these questions and many others in the Edmonton Urban BioKit.

Designed for newcomers but fun and interesting for everyone, this nature observation guide was created by the City of Edmonton, the Biosphere, environment museum, and the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers. It provides an entertaining and interactive way to learn more about the plant and animal diversity existing in Alberta’s capital.

Edmonton is working hard to create green corridors linking its various parks. The City of Edmonton has planted over 300 000 trees worth a total of more than $1.7 billion! Birds and other animals use these rows of trees to move from one natural area to another.
