A Visit from the OWL Foundation

Calling all Museum Kids and Kids @ Heart for this special Museum Kids Presentation on OWLS. This 40-50-minute slide presentation is targeted equally at a well-informed naturalist club or general public audience and looks at the Vineland-based Owl Foundation and its work rescuing and rehabilitating injured and orphaned owls

Snow No! How Higher Temperatures Impact Our Planet

Working with members of the museum team come channel your inner climate scientist and complete an experiment explaining why sea levels rise as Canada’s extensive land ice melts. Then dawn your field naturalist cap because you’re tracking local animals through the museum: can you figure out who left which footprint? Finally can we cool cities down by changing their colours? We’re going to put it to the test.

Two sessions are available to choose from: 9:30 – 10:30am OR 11am – 12pm. There are limited spots available in each session, so don’t delay!

These sessions are FREE to attend, but pre-registration for the child attending is required (accompanying adults do not need to register). Book today by clicking the link below for your preferred time, or call the Museum at 613.354.3027 to reserve your spot.

Please note: the registration button below will automatically take you to the first session (9:30am – 10:30am). If you would like to register for the later session (11am – 12pm), please click HERE.
