Putting Environmental Studies into Practice
with Erica Van Dyk

For the past forty years, the Environmental Studies program at the University of Victoria has been enlightening young minds to the wonders of our natural world and the urgent challenges we face in preserving it for future generations. One such graduate is Erica Van Dyk. While pursuing her studies, she has accomplished everything from managing ecological restoration projects to teaching elementary students about native pollinators. Erica will elaborate on these and other unique opportunities she engaged as a result of the program.
