Nature Express

All the Nature Express funding has been awarded for 2017–2018.

Some 1400 students from 32 schools will benefit from the free transportation to the museum, free admission and free workshop.

What Is Nature Express?

The Nature Express programme will bring students from schools that are facing severe financial obstacles to visiting the Canadian Museum of Nature.

Through Nature Express, TD Friends of the Environment and the Canadian Museum of Nature will fund transportation costs and provide general museum admission for each student. Priority will be given to schools in the National Capital Region.

Students will experience a curriculum-linked education programme led by our educators at no cost.

We encourage successful teacher applicants to take full advantage of Nature Express and spend the entire day at the museum with their class.
