RBCM@Home (Kids)

Nature Detectives with Jana Stefan

Phenology is the study of how the changing seasons affect the plants, animals and weather of a particular ecosystem or location.

Join special guest Jana Stefan, exhibit artist at the Royal BC Museum, for some sleuthing in order to observe what is blooming, hatching or otherwise changing in the natural world around (or inside!) our homes. You'll then be able to use your creativity and artistic skill to record those observations on your very own phenology wheel. 

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.

What you'll need:

  • Blank pieces of paper
  • Something to draw with (Pencil crayons, markers, crayons, etc.)
  • A plate or something circular to trace, and fits within your paper

Zoom Link to join the session: 


The Zoom Room has a capacity of 500 spots. If you are not able to access through Zoom, we will also be streaming on Facebook Live. Please visit the Royal BC Museum Facebook page.

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is like a museum playdate online. Visit with members of the museum staff who are working from home, along with families from across BC, as we make and learn together. Each session will have some kind of making activity, so get your paper and pencil crayons ready. RBCM @ Home(Kids) takes place on Wednesdays at 11 am, visit our calendar for topics, presenters and a list of materials so you can join in with hands-on activities at home.

For adults and youth, check out RBCM @ Home. This program takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12pm and highlights members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home during the pandemic and discover how they do their work, how their work is reflected in their homes and what they're working on now.
