Students will record their experiences on an Internet journal along with historical accounts of the area by recording journals and through First Nation Elder interpretation.

The site, complete with a map of the Yukon and the journal accounts of the students (along with historical journal entries from early explorers) can be added onto each year. Different students will be able to add information about different areas each year.
