Description

Knowing Nature: Stories of the Boreal Forest focuses on the biodiversity and global importance of the our northern-most forests through first-person stories, authentic objects, interactive experiences and exquisite photography and videography.


In a carbon-conscious world, boreal forests are significant, storing 2-3 times the amount of carbon as tropical forests. Boreal forests provide nesting habitat for over fifty percent of migratory bird species. Many of our most familiar back-yard birds started their lives in the boreal. Indigenous peoples have lived in these forests for thousands of years and today, their knowledge offers a vision for a sustainable future. 


This timely exhibition integrates the themes of climate change, Indigenous perspectives and the relationship between people and nature. It takes audiences on a learning journey that starts with curiosity, builds empathy and leads to action. Knowing Nature offers stories of resilience, strength and hope in a changing world.
