Join award-winning children’s author Lindsey Carmichael as she leads your family in an exploration of the boreal forest – the largest, most northern forest in the world…with 29 percent of it right here in Canada! This introduction to the boreal biome will help kids understand why forests matter. Lindsey will explore biodiversity with a look at the animals – both iconic and obscure – who call the boreal forest home. She will also get you up and moving as she demonstrated how photosynthesis helps forests prevent climate change. This program runs approximately 30 minutes, leaving plenty of time to answer questions. Attendees will also receive a free printable pdf with instructions for an at-home forest filtration experiment.

Storytime in the Garden is a new children’s author series, hosted by the Toronto Botanical Garden and generously supported by Joan Wright. This virtual even will take place live on Zoom. Registration is FREE on EventBrite.
