Explorer Days

Explorer Days are regular outings that offer parents and their children the opportunity to actively connect with nature. Through these events organized by local nature club leaders, your family will discover nearby nature, learn about BC ecosystems and meet other families of outdoor enthusiasts. On Explorer Days, you might build nets and go pond dipping for aquatic insects, learn about plants in the forest or explore local tide pools! With expertise and guidance from Nature Mentors and an unlimited range of activities, 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. Hear what others had to say about NatureKids below.

“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,
