Staff with the Helen Schuler Nature Centre recently unveiled a brand-new exhibit called the Nature of Play.
Coreen Putman, the manager of the centre says this is an exciting time for the group as kids will now be able to come and play whenever they want.
“I think certainly most people understand that when you engage in physical play, it’s good for your muscles, but it’s also really, really good for your for your brain. And a lot of your major organs. Those are setup for people to sit and kind of be creative. And whether it’s creating, like, little mini habitats or creating kind of, like, pieces of very nature based art, kind of the sky’s the limit. We tried to set the exhibit up so it’s not super prescriptive that it’s really quite open ended, and kids and all age visitors seem to be, like, figuring it out. It’s been a lot of fun.”
The exhibit will be open to the public for the next six months at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre.
