With the holidays approaching, there are many seasonal and educational activities happening around town. Here are some suggestions….
Arts Umbrella: Upcoming Events – Arts Umbrella They are also registering now for Spring Break programs.
Burnaby Village Museum: School Programs | Burnaby Village Museum
Every Winter, the Museum grounds host “Heritage Christmas”, which is a free, beautiful, self-guided tour of the old village, with Christmas lights and displays. It’s a lovely outdoor walk on a clear and cold evening. Add a vintage carousel ride (for a fee) and make the night complete.
Beaty Biodiversity Museum (UBC): https://beatymuseum.ubc.ca/learn/in-person-tours-and-programs/
Self-guided tours to “discover the interconnectedness of all life on Earth, and our role in preserving these delicate systems.” See a 26m long blue whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling of the atrium. Several times a day there is a film showing of how the skeleton was sourced, cleaned, and assembled.
VanDusen Botanical Gardens/Bloedel Conservatory:
