What is a Forest For? with L.E Carmichael

Saturday, November 7 at 11am

Join award-winning children’s science author L.E. Carmichael as she introduces us to the boreal forest! We’ll explore biodiversity with a look at the animals – both iconic and obscure! – who call the boreal forest home. Using a movement activity, we’ll then discuss photosynthesis and how it helps forests prevent climate change. At the end, you’ll be able to ask Lindsey any questions you have about the boreal forest and climate change!

You can either attend this event virtually by watching online from home or you can visit THEMUSEUM and watch Lindsey from there.
