Sensory Friendly Mornings

Science World welcomes its partners from Parks Canada every Wednesday to Monday throughout the summer (shows are free with admission). Check out all of their activities to learn how to enjoy our country’s national parks in a safe and sustainable way.
West Coast Indigenous Partnerships Presentation—This short presentation is included with your ticket to the 12pm screening of Great Bear Rainforest. Learn about how Parks Canada has partnered with the Indigenous Peoples of BC’s West Coast to restore our beautiful natural ecosystems. Film ticket required for admission.
Fire Management Show—Learn how Parks Canada fights fire with fire! Wildfires can be a big problem for people, animals and many plants. But they can also be a necessary part of a healthy forest’s life cycle. This interactive show helps us understand how we can manage fires to maximize the benefits and reduce the risks.
Keeping Wildlife Wild—This 25-minute live theatre show helps us understand how to keep Canada’s wildlife—and ourselves—safe when we visit our national parks.
In addition to these shows, look for Parks Canada partners around the building all day long with their interactive touch table activities, interactive story sessions and Parka the Beaver, Parks Canada’s mascot!
