Canada Day events with the Canadian Museum of Nature are heading online. 

With may events going virtual due to COVID-19, Ottawa’s Museum of Nature is no exception and are, too, planning some activities Canadians can participate in through their website and social media platforms. 

Among the activities are learning about the maple leaf, making chalk paint and drawing the provincial and territorial flowers, making a sweet Canadian treat inspired by the cold or taking an online museum tour of Canada’s national museum of natural history. 

And for those who are able to drop  by the museum at 240 McLeod St., take a self in front of the museum’s Queen’s Lantern — it will be lit in red on June 30 and July 1.

As for Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill or downtown, they have been cancelled but online entertainment is planned. 

Canadian Heritage's social media sites will also have interactive activities and online content that include performance from artists across Canada.
