Ottawa, ON

Highlighting the season, and making its first ever stop in Canada, is the blockbuster show Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence. The exhibition explores the extraordinary organisms that produce their own light — from flickering fireflies to strange deep sea fishes — and shows how light is used to attract a mate, lure unsuspecting prey or defend against a predator.

Faro, YT

Don't miss the Annual Crane & Sheep Viewing Festival and one of North America's most spectacular migrations of the Sandhill Cranes! At the beginning of May, the Sandhill Cranes are on their way to nesting grounds in western Alaska and North-eastern Siberia. Visitors can see the birds funnel through the Yukon's "Birdlock of Sandhill Cranes Highway" also known as the Tintina Trench. It is exciting to watch as they swoop, soar and ride thermals right over the Town of Faro.

The festival also showcases Fannin sheep, tours of the area, natural history talks, and family entertainment. We are looking forward to seeing you here in Faro. We are planning to have a variety of exciting activities for all ages. Come and see the Sandhill Cranes, view the Fannin Sheep; participate in an array of exciting activities, enjoy best of what Town of Faro has to offer and most all enjoy the warm hospitality of our wonderful residents. You will feel right at home and probably would not want to leave!
