Education - Programs

Welcome to the Discovery Lab!

Engaging a group of children with hands-on activities, here at the Discovery Lab, where it’s easy to learn about the natural world! Expertise not required: our programs and exhibits cover the fascinating geology of the river system, the unique ecosystem and living creatures, as well as the soil, water, and all the amazing fossils found on the river.

Our unique natural setting allows you to discover your place in the world by exploring the connection between the environment, our shared heritage, and the geography of our incredible province.

Your child will show a keen interest in science and nature when checking out our family programs! They’re a fun way to enhance your child’s education and encourage their curiosity.

And don’t let the kids have all the fun. We have programs for grown-ups too!
