Children learn about these furry creatures and what makes them so different from others in the animal world.
Students discover how the animals of Manitoba prepare for the onset of winter. From hibernation to 'high-tailing it', animals have adapted to our often snowy and blustery environment. A short presentation will be followed by artifact sharing and activities.
Did you know where are approximately 155 species of butterflies found in Manitoba alone? Discover the diversity of Manitoba's butterflies, their biology and conservation through this multimedia presentation. Explore the life story of Stuart, the swallowtail butterfly, through life cycle costumes, and examine the beauty of these magnificent winged creatures through unique specimen cases.
This program was developed in partnership with Doug Collicutt, local biologist, and with the support of Sustainable Development Innovations Fund and Manitoba Heritage Grants Program.
