SASKATOON – It’s being called an investment in curiosity and discovery. Loraas Disposal says it’s happy to donate $100,000 to the Children’s Discovery Museum so kids can come together to explore science and culture.

The money will help the museum transform the former Mendel Art Gallery into an exciting space for children.

“There’s going to be an immersive mining experience in the basement,” said Dave Hunchak, president of the Children’s Discovery Museum.
