2015 Edition

The 2nd edition of Nature Days took place from May 22 to 24, 2015. After its success in 2014, the 2015 program presented close to 100 free activities around Quebec.

 

This David Suzuki Foundation initiative, in collaboration with the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Family Foundation, with the support of the Desjardins Movement, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, and more than 70 partners across Quebec, aims to remedy the nature deficit affecting a growing number of Quebeckers, especially young people.

 

The Foundation launched the 2015 edition of Nature Days during its large-scale urban picnic. Surpassing expectations, this gathering allowed more than 1,500 participants to attend yoga classes, interact with specialists in urban biodiversity, including beekeepers, and receive free plants, as well as taste food prepared during a cooking challenge put on by young Chefs Table aficionados! In other words, it was a project-worthy launch.

 

Subsequently, activities, which were held by more than 70 partners, welcomed more than 8,000 participants, free of charge, around the province. There was something for everyone: treasure hunting, forest survival, urban horticulture, insect discovery, and much more.

 

Many thanks to our activity, financial, and advertising partners for their contributions to the event’s success. We would also like to underscore the crucial support of municipalities, volunteers, and citizens – a heartfelt thanks to everyone.

 

Building on the success of the first two editions, Nature Days will be back in Spring 2016 with a spectacular schedule and different activities that will immerse you in nature!
