Guided tours and Animated activities

A Degree of Change (New)

Global warming or climate change? These two closely related phenomena are still not well understood. A new presentation will demystify this issue of global importance. You’ll learn about the current repercussions of global warming and climate change, but also about creative, proactive steps communities can take to adapt to and mitigate the effects.

A Dose of Vitamin N (New)

Nature has a healing power for humans, thanks to its many positive impacts on our lives. When we become disconnected from it, we develop nature deficit disorder. As a result, our physical and psychological health and our relationships to our families and the environment all suffer. This presentation, which will be given in the Biosphere’s indoor garden, will make you think about your daily dose of “Vitamin N”--are you getting enough?


By playing Tic Tac Tox, participants will come to understand that while toxic products are an often essential part of our everyday lives, they also present risks for the environment and human health.Without chemicals, it would be impossible to manufacture paper or steel, drive a car or have medication. But how do you avoid getting poisoned? This novel interactive game will teach you how to limit your exposure to toxic products.

Outside, a whole new world!

Through a series of animated activities, come discover the biodiversity of île Sainte-Hélène. You will be surprised and awed by the tiny treasures and discoveries that abound!
