Science Literacy Week 2020
Celebrate Science Literacy week with Nature NB and learn more about the species that call New Brunswick home!
Led by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), Science Literacy Week showcases the many ways kids and families can explore and enjoy the diversity of Canadian science. From September 21 to 27, 2020, libraries, museums, science centres, schools and not-for-profits are coming together to celebrate this year’s theme, Biodiversity. We are highlighting the books, movies, podcasts and events that share exciting stories of the science, discoveries and ingenuity shaping our lives. Feed your curiosity and explore science from across the country and within your region.
Nature NB wants you to enjoy the unique biodiversity of New Brunswick by joining us this week for a series of virtual tours and self-guided nature walks!
We’ve set up self-guided walks at four nature trails in the province. All week long, you can look out for signs along the trails at the following locations that point out different species you can see on your walk.
- Hanwell Recreation Centre
- Ganong Nature Park
- New Maryland Trails
- Gateway Wetlands Nature Trail
Families who take part in our nature walks will have a chance to win a Nature NB prize pack! Take a picture of your favourite sign and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org to be entered in the draw.
For those of you who didn’t make it to the coast this year, or who are interested in learning more about New Brunswick’s beaches, check out our virtual tours of two of NB’s beautiful coastal provincial parks: Murray Beach and New River Beach! After watching, email email@example.com with one thing you learned from the virtual tour to be entered into the draw.
