MANL Midday Museums: Interpreting our Natural Heritage

Date: Tuesday, July 30
Time: 12:00 PM
Location: Online via Zoom

Newfoundland & Labrador is a land of vast natural beauty with a diverse natural heritage, which is inextricably linked to our rich cultural history.

Join Anne Madden for MANL’s next Midday Museums session to learn why puffins, pitcher plants ptarmigan, ponies and more are such important symbols of our unique historical and natural heritage.

Discover how we celebrate our natural heritage in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador through our museums, heritage organizations, nature trails, parks, botanical gardens, protected areas, natural attractions and more.

We will also discuss some practical information to pass onto your visitors, such as why pitcher plants only grow in bogs (and yes, they do eat insects), the best time of year to spot whales and icebergs, and where and when to look for ripe blueberries.

To register, please fill out this form by Monday, July 29.

Please note that the meeting will not be recorded.

Midday Museums is a series of webinars, discussion sessions and networking events, set for noon on the last Tuesday of each month. Midday Museums is available thanks to the generous support provided by the United Way Newfoundland and Labrador’s Community Services Recovery Fund.
