 Annual Outdoor Stations

Here’s a list of what has been included at the outdoor Clean Air Day event in the past.

Health Canada Air Quality Station

Health Canada will be offering air quality information and goodies, promoting the reduction of air quality hazards in the home and using the Air Quality Health Index to plan activities outside

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society MB

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!

Motion Zone (Sport Manitoba)

Join this station to play games such as corn hole, safe axe throwing, ladder toss, giant connect 4, football kicking target and more!

Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association

Come participate in a mini waste audit! The participants will work together to sort the materials into the correct bin. 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!

Winnipeg Transit

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!

Fireweed Co-op

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!

Bike Winnipeg

Join us in learning bike hand signals, racing in potato sack, and playing ladder toss!

Green Kids inc.

A found-object puppetry station, facilitated by two eco-drama instructors. Turn found objects into active transportation machines and create characters to demonstrate how awesome moving through town powered by people–fuel can be.
