Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world! To celebrate and support this global movement Kelowna Museums is encouraging the community to “go-green” by opting to bike or take public transit on this day. In fact, what better way to participate in Earth Day than to hop on the bus and head to the Okanagan Heritage Museum conveniently located next to the Queensway bus exchange downtown?

Ride to the museum on Earth Day and connect yourself with this land, its people, and its creatures. Discover fascinating facts through a specially designed Earth Day adventure!

Go-green for the day and get free giveaways! Stop in to the Okanagan Heritage Museum and show your bus transfer for an instant prize!

But don’t stop there…

Explore our natural history by discovering exhibits and activities at the Okanagan Heritage Museum. Learn amazing facts about the winter home and its connection to the land. Meet some creatures from the Okanagan including beavers, birds and more! There will be many Earth Day themed stories & displays for visitors of all ages to enjoy.

Kelowna Museums help the bees 300x207 Ride to the Museum on Earth DayThe case of the disappearing bees

Since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed the mysterious and sudden disappearance of bees, and report unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies (source: GreenPeace website). This is particularly alarming here in the Okanagan where bee pollination is extremely important for our agricultural industries.

We’ll help you help the bees! Come to the museum to find out how.

 

This program brought to you in partnership with BC Transit and Kelowna Regional Transit.
