Welcome to the Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society (NS3)!

Located at 4355 Jingle Pot Road in room 101.


Due to the current situation with COVID-19 NS3 is going into hibernation until further notice.

We are sad to announce this, but we feel that this is the best way to keep our staff and clients safe.

We are also optimistic that things will have calmed by the summer and are making plans with this in mind.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. We hope to see you all again soon!

If you have any questions, please email our Executive Director.
