Nature Nook


Explore our Province’s plants, animals, and wild spaces with Nature NL. In partnership with The Rooms, we offer hands-on sessions to interact with real specimens like seal pelts, skulls, whale baleen, antlers, moose fur, and a variety of rocks and minerals of our province. We have a library of books for kids and adults as well as puppets and stuffed toys for the little ones to play with. Ask our naturalists questions about our natural world and the wildlife of the province. We often have themed scavenger hunts for kids, which can be completed with one of our volunteers or as a family.  Pick up brochures, activity sheets, become a member of Nature NL, learn more about our events and activities, or even ask us about volunteering with us.

Join us on the 3rd floor atrium (the large open space between the galleries) at The Rooms provincial museum, 9 Bonaventure Avenue in St. John’s, and share your passion about nature and the environment. This program is included for no additional charge with your paid entry to The Rooms.
