Sundays in July & August
Niagara Glen Nature Centre, NOTL
Let’s face it, science can be mysterious and…dare we say it? Super cool! Gone are the days when science was considered dry and boring. In fact, many of us are choosing to embrace our ‘inner science geek’ as a way to reconnect with nature and our health.
Do you have a budding young scientist at home just bursting with curiosity? Or, are you itching for an excuse to ditch the cellphone and spend quality time with your family?
Inspire your kids this summer and join Niagara Parks for Science Sundays at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre, one of our most unique natural sites along the 56KM Niagara River corridor.
Throughout July and August, we’ll host a number of science and nature-related presentations and activities. Learn about a variety of fascinating science subjects and take part in interactive, fun demonstrations that you can DIY at home!
Niagara Parks is surrounded by the power of water which is why we felt it was only ‘natural’ to launch our series on July 7th with two water experiments! Spoiler…Fireworks and Lava Lamps…Oh my!
New this year is ‘Science Art’. Through the diffusion of colour, you’ll get to learn how water solubility works and, as part of ‘Nature Art’ you’ll explore the anatomy and complexity of leaves on the many different tree species thriving throughout Niagara Parks.
Plan an Adventure
Whether you’re planning a hike through our pristine Carolinian forest or checking out the White Water Walk, visit the Niagara Glen Nature Centre for an inspiring afternoon of hands-on learning. Win points to redeem inside the Nature Exchange or, collect them along your hike by participating in the photo scavenger hunt using the maps posted along the trails.
About the Niagara Glen Nature Centre
On top of the Niagara Gorge, the Niagara Glen Nature Centre overlooks our pristine pocket of Carolinian forest and the vibrant teal-coloured waters of the Niagara River. In 2017, Niagara Parks restored the Niagara Glen Nature Centre in response to the rapid growth and popularity of this site as a renowned educational outdoor destination for hikers, cyclists, conservationists, boulderers and anyone seeking an opportunity to reconnect with nature. Inside the Centre, you’ll find the Nature Exchange, a space where you can learn, trade and collect natural items to help you explore the world around you!
