Highlighted Catalyst Conference Event

The Beaty Biodiversity is putting on an open session for teachers outside of the Catalyst Conference schedule.

The Beaty Biodiversity Museum opened its doors in 2010 and UBC’s vast natural history collections were put on public display for the first time. The museum and its collections are the centrepiece of UBC’s Biodiversity Research Centre, which brings together the world-class researchers of the Biodiversity Research Centre and biological collections into one innovative complex dedicated to understanding and conserving the diversity of life on earth through research, education, and community programs.

Open House: Talk & Tour @ 10:15 AM

Join us for a tour of our virtual exhibitions and resources, including the History Alive! award-winning Perspectives on Biodiversity – Sturgeon Knowledge Web. We’ll discuss our in-person and online offerings for the upcoming school year.
