Ocean Festival 2022

Dive Into Ocean Discovery!

The Canadian Museum of Nature is proud to participate in Ocean Festival 2022, a summer-long national initiative that includes events, engagement opportunities and learning activities.

In support of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, we are exploring human connections to the ocean.  

Starting in May and on different occasions through the summer, we'll offer special activities to explore ocean-related topics and the ways in which the ocean benefits us.

Dive into ocean discovery! Learn how we can help ensure a healthy ocean for future generations.
