The Nature Exploration Club for Families....
NatureKids BC helps children get outdoors to explore, play, learn about and take action for nature. We are a province-wide network of volunteer-led nature clubs for children ages 5-12 and their families. Membership is only $25 per family per year-- join the club and come explore with us!
Crystal: I have always been a nature enthusiast. I grew up in Logan Lake BC where we would always go for long hikes and explore the forests around our house. Now that I am an adult I am using my love for nature to create a career. I have a Diploma in Natural Resource Technology and am currently completing my BSc in Environmental Practice. I became a nature club leader because I wanted to be more involved in the community and help the young people of Merritt learn more about nature and get outside!
Hello, my name is Roxanne. I have lived in the interior of BC for over 25 years, 8 of that was at the coast. 2 years now in Merritt. I love nature and going for hikes and seeing the wildlife. Crystal, our leader is my daughter. I was born in Saskatchewan, and moved to Peace River, Alberta when I was 9. I love BC and the beauty here.
