About this Event

RBG at Home Virtual Learning Live!

Gather the family to join us Tuesday afternoons for a live 30 minute session with our interpreters, learning about and connecting to the natural world around us. Whether it’s learning how animals stay warm in winter, how seeds travel from place to place, or creating natural art outdoors, your family will have the opportunity to ask questions live with our nature experts in this interactive learning experience – free to all with natural curiosity.

Tuesdays, March 2 to April 27; 1-1:30 p.m. EST

Please note: due to high demand, we are able to offer these programs to families only. Teachers, please go to https://www.rbg.ca/things-to-do/courses-camps-programs/virtual-field-trips/ for our virtual program offerings for your classroom. If you are a local school, your program may be eligible for our Green Angels funding.”
