Animals Of The Great Lakes Coming To Science North Thanksgiving Weekend
This Thanksgiving weekend families will have the chance to view, interact with, and touch a caribou, a Golden Eagle, a skunk and a Turkey vulture! All of these species are native to the Great Lakes region.
Public presentations featuring Animals of the Great Lakes will be held in the Inco Cavern. Presentations are free for Science North Members and included with Science Centre admission! Showtimes are as follows:
Saturday, October 11th – 11 a.m & 12:30 p.m.
Sunday, October 12th – 11 a.m., 1 p.m. & 2:30 p.m.
The Animals of the Great Lakes show features an informal lecture about the animals, their ecology and conservation issues, followed by a question and answer session and the opportunity to touch the animals! Interactive programs like these have proven effective in increasing knowledge and positive attitudes about these birds and animals, and their conservation.
Visitors can complement their Animals of the Great Lakes experience with a screening of the Science North produced IMAX® film Mysteries of the Great Lakes, which showcases the story of the lake sturgeon, the Bald Eagle and the woodland caribou.
The Animals of the Great Lakes presentation is supported by the provincial government through the Ministry of Tourism Celebrate Ontario program.
