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. This program 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.

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. 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.
