Virtual Reality Tour Enhancing Outdoor Environmental Education

The Camosun Bog 360º Field Trip is a self-directed tour of a bog that rests on the unceded, ancestral territory of the Musqueam people in Pacific Spirit Regional Park, Vancouver, Canada. The once large Camosun was and is a source of stories, food, medicines, raw materials, and trade commodities for the Musqueam people. It is also home to many plants and animals that have adapted to its wet, low-nutrient, and acidic environment. However, local housing developments and climate change have threatened the health of Camosun Bog, and today it is at risk of disappearing. Dedicated community members, knowledge keepers, and scientists have been working to protect and restore this special place.

Camosun Bog 360º can be accessed using a virtual reality headset, desktop, or mobile device. As they explore the bog, students will see hotspots. They can click or tap these to read signs, or launch videos or audio. Learning materials for the Camosun Bog 360º Field Trip were co-created with the Camosun Bog Restoration Group and Pacific Spirit Park Society.
