Description

UTOWN @ UBC Nature Club

Make new friends while getting to know your human, plant, and animal neighbours!

Nature Club is back and this year we are making things fun and flexible! Drop in between 10:30 am – 1:00 pm the first Sunday of the month to enjoy all of our regular museum programming, including museum tours, Raising Big Blue movie, and special hands-on activities just for you! Be sure to stick around for the Way Cool lecture starting at 1:00 pm.

A FREE program for campus residents, these three-hour drop-in sessions are designed for children 5-12 years old accompanied by an adult (not suitable for preschool-aged children). This program is supported by a partnership between the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and the Pacific Museum of Earth. All sessions will be held at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, with experts from the Pacific Museum of Earth making guest appearances.

Enter to win a Family Membership or a Free Birthday Party at the Beaty!

Participate in 4 of the UTOWN @ UBC Nature Clubs for a chance to win.

To participate, each child in attendance at any UTOWN @ UBC Nature Club on the first Sunday of the month will be given a passport containing 4 blank “what I learned today” sections. At each UTOWN @ UBC Nature Club event, draw or write what you learned that day in one of the sections. There is no right or wrong way to show what you’ve learned, so feel free to be as creative as you want! Before you leave, return your passport to a Beaty staff member or volunteer and we will keep it for you until you visit us next time – whether that is next month or in a few months.

A passport is complete once all four “what I learned today” sections are complete. Each passport requires the participant to attend any four UTOWN @ UBC Nature Clubs to complete it and receive an entry form.

Once you complete the passport, you are entered to win 1 of 6 Birthday Parties or 1 of 12 Family Memberships. All UTOWN @ UBC Nature Club attendees are eligible to win! Visit beatymuseum.ubc.ca/family-days-contest for this information and full contest rules. One passport per child. UTOWN residents are eligible to get double-entries by registering in advanced! Prize draws will take place on February 19, 2018 and June 18, 2018.
