School Program Coordinators:

Sue Arlidge, BSc (Physical Geography), BEd (Secondary), University of Calgary

Sue Arlidge has been an environmental educator for over 25 years. Trained as a high school science teacher and ACMG day hiking and snowshoe guide, Sue has held a number of positions in the non-formal education sector from park naturalist, to family hiking guide, to horticultural education coordinator at the Calgary Zoo. Sue’s passion for engaging students in meaningful outdoor learning experiences has grown since coming to work with the University of Calgary’s Biogeoscience (BGS) Institute’s school ecology programs sixteen years ago. Often described as a squirrel on caffeine, Sue follows this advice from her rodent mentors – ‘spend lots of time in the woods, eat plenty of fiber, and it’s okay to be a little nuts’.
