Discovering nature first hand is the core purpose of the Nature Kids, for 5-12 year old children. Leaders organize Explorer Days, which are family-oriented participatory programs, using the expertise of local resource people. Fossil hunts, estuary walks, and low tide outings are some of the popular field trips that Nature Kids have organized. Each child in a family receives a membership package when joining for the annual family membership fee of $25.00. Members also receive a quarterly magazine, NatureWILD, featuring nature-related articles and activities. To join Nature Kids, go to the Nature Kids website at www.naturekidsbc.ca You can pay on-line or send a cheque.
Nature Kids has two volunteer leaders, Jocie Brooks and Hayley Datoo. To contact us please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-218-3946.
