NatureKids BC helps children get outdoors to explore, play, learn about and take action for nature.
VisionThrough their participation in NatureKids BC, children develop a love of nature, a lifelong connection to the natural world, and have the environmental literacy and skills to take action for nature.
NatureKids is an exciting nature discovery and environmental action program that invites young people ages 5-12 years to discover nearby nature on Explorer Day Adventures with local experts, learn about native wildlife and plants in NatureWILD Magazine and take part in environmental actions to protect their habitat with Stewardship Projects and an Action Awards Quest.
