What's Included

Nature Club Ages 7 – 11 Alternating Wednesday / 6 meetings April 8, April 22, May 6, May 20, June 3, June 17 4 – 6 pm Wonders of the Woods is the perfect way to refresh after a long indoor school day. Kids get outside for a serious dose of wilderness right here in Toronto. In the woodlands, we forget that we are even in the city as we find intricate lichens, invite chickadees to land on our hands, jump in a pile of leaves or feel the mud beneath our feet. 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 - Making nature crafts - Playing nature games - Snowshoeing (winter) “I really appreciate…the leadership, the games, the exploring, being outside, having fun, learning new stuff, sense of community, getting dirty and full of seeds!” – Parent Testimonial
