At-Home Activities

During this period of physical distancing, the staff at MUN Botanical Garden wants to maintain our social connection with our visitors. 

We have created this page to share Environmental Education Activities that parents can do with their children at home or on short nature walks. We will be uploading activities on Learn Together Tuesdays, so stay tuned!

You can share pictures of you completing the activities on our Facebook, or by email. Even though we're physically apart, we can still learn and explore our world together!

This Week's Activity:

To celebrate heading back to school, we will learn about how scientists work and will make our own tools to carry out experiments much like they do! Are you ready to be a scientist?
