Participate in a scavenger hunt! Review how we use our senses to connect to a place, followed by a short breathing/grounding activity, and then explore a section of the park to find nature textures and features!
Green Actions Centre
Come make seed bombs with us! Students will get to put together their very own seed bomb to take home at the end of the day to plant in the garden, yard or flower bed!
Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre
From owls, hawks and falcons, to reptiles and amphibians – you’ll have a chance to meet them up close! Together, we will discuss adaptations, conservation, ecology, and the biology of each species! We will also talk about why these ambassadors are permanent residents here at Wildlife Haven and how they help to educate the public about native Manitoba Wildlife!

Once all the materials have been sorted, our Ambassadors will educate the participants on which items were correctly disposed of! We will also have a mini sticker audit that they can take home and refer to.
Manitoba Council for International Cooperation
Visit the MCIC booth to answer some sustainable development goal trivia! Students can spin the wheel, then answer a trivia question about the SDG they land on to win a prize!
Come learn how to use a bike rack on a Winnipeg Transit bus, and see how quickly you can put it on the rack and take it off again!
Use a board that shows the growing season months and various vegetables and fruits to pin onto the board in the spot that corresponds with when that item is harvested. We’ll also have a diagram showing the components of healthy soil and why that’s important for clean air!
Join us in learning bike hand signals, racing in potato sack, and playing ladder toss!
