Haida Gwaii Semesters in Natural Resource Studies
Creating a new generation of natural resource leaders.
Developed for senior undergraduates interested in natural resources and the environment, Haida Gwaii Semesters provide students with an immersion opportunity to study in a remote,
resource-dependent community where the pressing social, cultural, ecological, political and economic issues facing natural resource managers around the globe converge at a local scale.
Students live on Haida Gwaii, attend lectures at the world-class Haida Heritage Centre at Kaay Llnagaay (“Sea Lion Town”) in Skidegate, tour the forests and landscapes of the islands, meet with local experts and knowledge-holders, and become part of the Haida Gwaii Community.
We're still accepting applications for the 2013 Fall Semester and
2014 Winter Semester, apply today!

“I learned more about forestry, management, and the coming together of various groups with different backgrounds and values to protect and restore Haida Gwaii than I ever would have sitting in a classroom in Vancouver. I grew as a student and will remember these invaluable lessons and apply what I’ve learnt in the future.”
