Tree ID : For Families

Experience Nature Logo.

Do you ever find yourself looking at a tree and thinking
“I wonder what that is!”

Join CPAWS Manitoba Environmental Educator Carly Gray as she shares her journey into exploring and identifying native Manitoba plants and trees. Together we will explore the trees in the space and use various techniques to distinguish them from one another. This session is for families and will include child-oriented activities that are good for people of all ages! Registration opens July 9 at 10am.

Check out all the programs on the Experience Nature page.

Storytime @ The Pool

Nothing says summer quite like a dip in the pool with a side of Dr. Seuss. Children of all ages are invited to join us for story time at the local public pool during swimming lessons on Fridays in July and August. Stay for one story, or stay for them all!

Drop in anytime between 10:30-11:30am weather permitting.
