Earth Day At the Biosphère: It’s All About the Earth!
MONTRÉAL, Que. -- April 13, 2010 -- As part of Earth Day, experts from Natural Resources Canada will be at the Biosphère on April 24 and 25 to reveal all of Earth sciences' secrets! The event’s unique programming will include a GeoRally, dynamic miniature models, 3D cartography and much more!
Earth Sciences GeoRally (Outdoor activity)
The Biosphère invites the public to come and explore Sainte-Hélène Island on foot by participating in this new rally developed by Natural Resources Canada. Using a GPS (Global Positioning System), participants will be able to seek out caches scattered along a course spanning about 2.5 kilometres. Information and clues found in these caches will then be used to answer questions and learn more about themes relating to the Earth sciences.
Visitors can also meet experts and get acquainted the subjects of groundwater, cartography, geomatics and geology.
Admission to the museum will be free throughout the event, which is part of “Jour de la Terre aux musées” (Earth Day at the museums). For more information, please visit our Web site: www.ec.gc.ca/biosphere/.
