Explorer Days

In response to COVID-19, NatureKids BC is providing online resources and interactions, such as Virtual Explorer Days, to ensure the safety of our members. Please read our COVID-19 Guidelines and Policy for any potential in-person gatherings this summer.

Organized by our local nature club leaders, Explorer Days are regular outings that offer parents and their children the opportunity to connect with the outdoors. Explorer Days are packed with fun and learning for the whole family! We offer over 200 Explorer Days annually to our members through our province-wide network of nature clubs. At these events, your family will explore nearby nature, learn about BC ecosystems and meet other families enthusiastic about the natural world. You might go pond dipping for aquatic insects, learn about plants in the forest or explore local tide pools. The expertise and guidance of our Nature Mentors means that the range of activities is endless! Parental involvement is required on Explorer Days.

Check out our Explorer Day Calendar to view upcoming and past events!

“As far as what NatureKids BC added to my life – wonderful friendships and collegial relationships that keep me involved with the natural world and children enjoying the natural world.  It has been a wonderful gift!” — Brian Herrin

“With those Explorer Days, we’ve been able to do a variety of things that maybe we would not normally do such as amphibian surveys, kayaking and taking part in a variety of walk/talks about bees, salmon, water buffalos, wild foods, wild flowers, rocks, outdoor survival, etc.” — Boleyn Relova
