Nature walks, talks and tours

We hold different outdoor activities for adults and families throughout the year.

Survival Workshops

Our New McGill Survival Workshops are now offered for everyone, including McGill students, staff and faculty. They are not suitable for young children. In English. 

These workshops are held once a month, over lunch from 12h-13h, with wilderness awareness educator Steve Leckman.

FEE per workshop: $10/ non-student or $5 / student (must be over 16 years of age) .

Payable when you arrive at the start of the workshop. All workshops start in the entrance hall of the Redpath Museum.  Fees are payable (in cash only) at the start of each workshop.  The FOUR workshops scheduled for WINTER 2019 will be held outdoors so dress suitably. Try to eat your lunch before or after because you will need your hands free.

All workshops require advance reservation at least one week before to: [at]
