YOUNG NATURALISTS

We offer 2 different groups for children of varying ages and experience levels

Young Naturalist Group (6-11 years old)

This is our core Young Naturalist Group; the focus in on enjoying our local wild spaces while building a scientific understanding of the world around us. This group is fun and enjoyable and also provides an introduction to environmental education. This group meets outdoors once per month (2 hour meetings) in local parks and other beautiful natural spaces. Children are monitored by an experienced guide during all our meetings; see ‘Meet the Instructor’ for more information. Parents are always welcome to attend.

Junior Conservationists (12-16 years old)

This program provides an introduction to environmental field studies for young adults interested in conservation as a hobby or a career! This group meets at least once per month and performs positive conservation ACTIONS – helping to protect, preserve, or rehabilitate natural spaces and their inhabitants. Most meetings will last from 4 to 8 hours – a full day’s work!! Young adults will be accompanied by at least one instructor during all meetings.

Organized and lead by Michael Kent and Anne Goulden.
