September is almost here and that means that kids are heading back to school, with all students being in class by September 5th.
For Jurassic Forest, it means that we can look forward to once again hosting lots of children as they embark on their first field trip of the new school year. It’s a great time of the year as they learn about the changing of the season and the impact on the local flora and fauna, while also learning lots about dinosaurs and paleontology in Alberta.
Unfortunately, it also means we are seeing the sun coming up a little bit later each morning, and setting earlier in the evenings. Its for this reason, that we will be adjusting our operating hours just slightly to deal with the earlier sunsets in September and October.
Effective TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th our closing time is being adjusted from the previous 7:00 pm to the new 6:00 pm time (final admission prior to 5:00 pm), with these hours in place daily, Sunday to Saturday. Please note this change if you have a Jurassic Forest excursion in your plans for September and October!
We are also receiving lots of inquiries about the Close of Season date for 2017. That’s a decision we will be making soon, but we are going to watch the weather a little bit more before we commit to a day and date.
Thank you to everyone for such a great Summer Season!
Sincerely, Jurassic Forest
The interactive, inquiry-based programs at the Jurassic Forest and Learning Centre will take students and teachers back in time to discover prehistoric flora and fauna, while highlighting the beauty and diversity of the modern forest ecosystem.
The educational programs at Jurassic Forest were designed to meet Alberta Curriculum targets for Grades 1-7. Students will explore the forest using skills of observation, investigation, and discussion to foster an appreciation for the natural history of the earth and the amazing organisms of the past and present.
