Enrich your children’s outdoor experiences with simple, powerful nature activities, games and songs used by Metro Vancouver Park Staff. Direct contact with nature helps children develop respect and care for the environment and can positively affect their development. This workshop will introduce you to a variety of hands-on activities that can be applied to your backyard or natural areas in your community. Our sensory-based approach has been connecting children with nature since 1977.
