The term "biodiversity" refers to the variety of animals, plants, and habitats found on our planet. Biodiversity can be found everywhere, from your backyard to a National Park, and it plays an important role in maintaining healthy ecosystems.

Biodiversity also plays a key role in human health—from the food we eat and the medicine we take to the public lands that improve our mental and physical well-being. However, invasive species are a threat to biodiversity everywhere by out-competing native plants for the resources they need to survive.

This activity guide teaches students about the important role biodiversity plays in the well-being of people and the planet. In addition to an outdoor scavenger hunt activity, it also contains citizen science resources to explore.
