Traveling Nature Exchange

We're bringing The Nature Exchange gallery to your school! Students will connect meaningfully with nature in this hybrid virtual and in-person program. Join us on curriculum-based nature walks and inquiry-based learning. The visit ends with a trading centre where students can trade natural items and new-found knowledge for items from our collection. Choose between 4 or 8 classes to participate.

With a Traveling Nature Exchange booking, teachers can expect:

- One 45 min virtual program before your in-person visit
