Nature Explore Club Program

The Parks Foundation Nature Explore Club Program is a free program designed to encourage families and children to get outside to explore their local parks, trails and open spaces.

Nature Explore Clubs are informal groups of families and friends who meet to explore parks, trails, open spaces, and national forests throughout the community and region. No experience is necessary and the program is free. Ideas for creative outings and fun activities for children of all ages will be posted on the Vancouver Summer Adventure website and Facebook page.
