Human Nature Exhibition Now Open at Niagara Falls Museum
April 22, 2023 - January 7, 2024
Scientific evidence shows us that Human-made climate change threatens life on this planet. To ensure a viable habitat for present and future generations, sustainable ways of living must be quickly adopted. The artefact collections of the Niagara Falls Museums illustrate times of balance and times of imbalance for humans. These objects help us to think of our place on Earth as just one of many species and the impact that we have. Forging a new way together using Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Science, we can create a hopeful vision for a sustainable future.
