The Young Naturalist Club is an offshoot of BC Nature to provide an opportunity for children to have direct experiences with nature.  It is an exciting nature discovery and environmental action program that invites young people ages 5 – 12 to discover nature in their own neighborhoods and local parks, to explore and learn about local ecosystems and species on guided outings, and to take part in environmental actions to protect their habitat. For more information on Young Naturalists of BC see
