As we increasingly become city dwellers, our familiarty with the land and its natural resources becomes more vague. A visit to Vancouver Harbour lets us see and appreciate the significance of Canada's natural resources to jobs, the economy and global trade. This is a great opportunity for teachers at all grade levels.
