Do your kids want to meet other kids who love nature?

Does your family love exploring and learning about nature?

We are a FREE nature club geared toward youth and their families. Our programs run from September through June.

Experience Nature

Learn from expert naturalists at FUN workshops, explore local parks & trails on our field trips and observe many fascinating natural phenomena.

Our presentations and field trips are led by volunteer adult naturalists and guest scientists. Our presentations are age appropriate, hands-on, engaging and interactive.

Discover Nova Scotia’s natural history and learn basic naturalists skills.

Learn to observe and identify many species of Nova Scotia plants and animals.

Learn to use basic naturalist equipment (magnifying loupes, binoculars, field guides, nature journals and more).

Easy to Explore

Our chapters have regular meeting times each month but we are flexible. Come to all of our meetings and field trips or just those that fit your family’s schedule.

Our field trips explore natural areas in your community— explore with us and get to know the plants and animals that live near you.

If you are interested in starting a Chapter in your community contact us—we’ll help you get started and support you as you grow. Please contact the YNC Coordinator at the coordinates above.

Grown-up Naturalists

If you would like to volunteer as a guest presenter, field trip leader or by helping out at your local Chapter, let us know. Grown-up Naturalists are always welcome.
