Media Advisory - Launch of the summertime programming at Space for Life - Imagine you're a kid again!

MONTREAL, June 14, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - On June 20th, Space for Life invites you to see nature as though you were a kid again. At the Botanical Garden, Heroes of the Forest takes us right back to that fantastic world, when playing gave rise to a thousand and one tales of our imagining. The adventure unfolds in two phases: first the quest, then the tales. The quest activity puts your senses, your agility and your emotions on the alert. Here, you're the hero! Then, under the crabapple trees, let Alain Lamontagne, storyteller and artistic director of the story component, transport you to his fabulous word.

At the Insectarium, the little needs of the residents are spotlighted in the guided activity Oh, poop! Whereas at the Biodôme, the Poop Tales route unveils a host of anecdotes that will amuse younger and older visitors alike. This summer, the whole family will be a kid again at Space for Life.
