Snack Time with … Nova Scotia WildlifeQ

You’ll find some of Nova Scotia’s rich biodiversity living at the museum. Learn what animals eat and how it connects them to their surroundings and join us as we feed and care for a variety of native animals.

 

Hot Topic: Climate Change

2:00 pm

Climate Change is a topic at the top of many people’s minds these days. As fossil fuels continue to be burned to power our world, the consequences of our continued dependence is becoming clear. Join a museum naturalist as they provide some context to the phenomenon of climate change, what causes it, and why it will take a global undertaking to tackle the issue.

Gus is 96! He’s the oldest known gopher tortoise and has been at the Museum for over 70 years. Join Gus for a snack and a stroll. When the weather is nice, you may find Gus in our backyard!
