Upcoming Events

Pollinator Week English Logo 2024


Pollinator Week was initiated and is managed by Pollinator Partnership, and fourteen years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations.

Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration, promoting the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats, beetles, moths, wasps, and flies.

Pollinators such as bees, bats, birds, butterflies, and beetles do us an invaluable service. They are just as important as the warmth of the sunlight, the nutrients in the soil, and the purity of the water, for they help to pollinate over 75% of the world's flowering plants! Learn to identify different native pollinators and plants. Get tips for planting a pollinator-friendly garden, do arts, play games and much more. There is something for everyone to enjoy!

  • For children and adults of all ages.
  • Available in both French and English.
  • Register now to receive your booklet on Friday June 14!
  • Registrations will be accepted through June 13.

The Sonia Bujold Initiative  is an outreach initiative established in 2021 by Ms. Sonia Bujold, a recent retiree from the McGill Department of Biology, to “reach out” and break the isolation that students, individuals living alone, and families experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Initiative offers engaging and educational activities on the fascinating world of biology through a series of free online self-paced activity booklets for children and adults.  

The McGill Chapter of Let's Talk Science is a volunteer-based group of graduate and undergraduate students from a wide range of faculties at McGill University. Our volunteers deliver hands-on classroom presentations, host public science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) events, mentor for and evaluate projects at regional science fairs, and provide STEAM outreach to a range of urban and indigenous schools!

We would love to hear about your experience!
