Rosemère is proud to welcome the Montréal Space for Life squad to the Forêt des Frères du Sacré-Cœur—woodlands located behind the Externat Sacré-Cœur—August 28 and 29, 2020, to celebrate the nature and biodiversity of this place. Like the guides in art museums, the activity leaders of the Nature near you event will invite participants to focus on the natural life that surrounds them. Plants, mammals, birds, insects, minerals, atmospheric phenomena and stars will be the works of art at this open-air museum, shifting from scientific observation to poetic inspiration. It’s a great opportunity to reconnect with nature in this place abounding in life.

All the senses will be involved

By listening, breathing in the scents and opening their eyes wide, it's a safe bet that the participants will discover the Forêt des Frères du Sacré-Coeur in a new light. On tour throughout the summer in various public spaces in the Greater Montréal area, the Space for Life team has transformed the constraints of the pandemic into an opportunity to pursue its mission outside of its museums in order to continue reconnecting humans with nature. This connection is all the more important in these difficult times, as many studies show the positive impact of contact with nature on our health. By reaching out to people in their own living environments, Space for Life is consolidating its social role. Today, in addition to its many scientific education, mobilization and popular science activities, this organization is committed to offering a unique experience that inspires and brings humans closer to nature in their own backyard!
