Nature Days

Les journées de la natureThe David Suzuki Foundation’s Nature Days event from May 20th to 23rd is celebrating its third anniversary. Organizations around Montreal and off-island offer free activities for all ages to encourage individuals to explore and enjoy the outdoors.

Nature Days is an initiative to help families connect to nature in order to promote a sustainable and ecological attitude towards the environment.

Beyond the benefits to the environment, spending time outdoor has been proven to improve health, reduce stress and help children’s cognitive development.

Le Nichoir took part in this important initiative by organizing free activities at the Centre on May 20th for school groups and on May 21st for families including  a guided walk with our biologist in the Clarke Sydenham Nature Reserve behind Le Nichoir and learning about local birds and our organization.
