The Churchill Northern Studies Centre is a year-round field station that supports scientific and social researchers working on a diverse range of topics within northern science. We also support and facilitate learning programs featuring local ecology, culture, and history. Day visitors are also welcome for a variety of tours to include a Green Building Tour, a Ramsey Trail Walk, and a Rocket Range Interpretive Walk.
Explore the Sub-Arctic
The Churchill Northern Studies Centre offers school groups 3-7 day programming that explores three distinct biomes of the Canadian sub-arctic: boreal forest, marine, and tundra. The CNSC is an active research field station and is located east of Churchill, MB on the coast of Hudson Bay and west of Wapusk National Park which protects the inland denning area of the polar bear. Provide your students with a learning opportunity they will never forget!
