Family Nature Nights are a chance to get out the house, and explore what’s in our own backyard, literally. They’re a chance for the family to get together and take part in programming to learn about local nature, animals and ecosystems, for free.
Nature Kids is a province-wide club for youth and families who want to learn about nature and have fun at the same time! Nature Kids teaches children (aged 5–11) and their families about nature. The program provides educational materials and organizes monthly field trip experiences that promote being outdoors, observing nature, scientific investigation, environmental stewardship and healthy living.
