What's Included

Nature Club Ages 9 – 12 Alternating Saturdays / 6 meetings April 11, April 25, May 9, May 23, June 6, June 20 9:00 am – 11:30 am Saturday mornings are for exploring nature! Get outside for a dose of wilderness right here in Toronto. Kids forget that they are even in the city as they find intricate lichens, invite chickadees to land on their hands, jump in a pile of leaves or feel the mud beneath their feet. The kids say “it feels just like a morning at the cottage”! Our activities are guided by the seasons and weather conditions. Some areas of focus will likely include: - Hiking to some of High Park’s places of natural wonder - Wildlife tracking & bird watching - Learning about and safely tasting wild edibles - Animal and plant identification - Planting native plants (spring and fall) - Making maps and orienteering - Removing invasive species - Playing nature games - Snowshoeing (winter) “My child is always excited to go to Ramblers. Because the instructors are so warm and engaging to the kids this is a large part of the success of the Ramblers… in addition to the obvious glory of being among nature. The group size is also great, not too large, and the clubhouse is an intimate, cozy environment for learning.” -Parent testimonial
