NatureHood in partnership with Nature Canada
NatureHood is a program of Nature Canada. Its goal is to connect people of all ages to nature right where they live. As one of the provincial partners of the program, NatureKids BC helps make nature accessible and helps remove barriers to participation through a number of activities. Our areas of focus for this project are the Lower Mainland and the Capital Regional District.
One of our key contributions to the NatureHood project is through our annual program of Explorer Days activities provided locally by our network of nature clubs. We also provide educational resources – including NatureWILD and the accompanying Curriculum Connections – to elementary schools across the project area, and by coordinating access to resources (including NatureWILD, posters and multilingual Bird ID cards) to new immigrant families through immigrant settlement organizations we help young new Canadians and their families connect to nature where they live.
