Mountains 101: a free online learning experience

Parks Canada is proud to partner with the University of Alberta, a leader in education and research, to support Mountains 101: Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that will provide a comprehensive overview of mountain studies.

Mountains 101 will inspire Canadians to learn and explore Canada’s mountain heritage throughout the country (including mountain national parks) and to understand how Parks Canada protects, conserves and shares these special places.

To register or for more information, go to the University of Alberta Mountains 101 course web page.

Through partner initiatives such as this, Parks Canada encourages more Canadians, including youth and newcomers, to experience the outdoors and learn about our environment and history right from their own homes.

As we approach Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations in 2017, building experiences, like Mountains 101, will be critical for success in helping Canadians connect with Canada’s natural and cultural heritage.

We are proud of our partnership with the University of Alberta on this fascinating course and hope to inspire interest and excitement for national parks and sites across the country.
