YNC CBC4Kids Video Goes Live



Thanks to TELUS Optik you can watch a video about this year's Christmas Bird Count for Kids held in Stanley Park.

To see it click the link here or find it on the video on demand menu of TELUS Optik, YouTube and on their website, it will also be the featured video on mytelus.com on Friday Jan 9, (which gets about 1/2 million hits daily!).

Thank you to all the kids and families that spent the day splashing in the puddles and counting birds with us and o our very special volunteer expert birders and co-hosts the Stanley Park Ecology Society & Bird Studies Canada! Save the date for 2015!

And a big thanks also to Director/Producer Melinda Friedman who stuck with us in the rain!


"Thanks for hosting us, it was fun, wet but fun! I think the YNC is a great thing for families, I'm pleased to help spread the word." Melinda Friedman

Happy Holidays! Thank you! Office Closure

Happy Holidays to all the Young Naturalists, volunteers and donors! It has been such a fun year, thank you for exploring and stepping up for nature with the YNC! Have fun playing in the snow over the break and we will see you in January. 
Please note the office will be closed now until January 5th. 



Giving Tuesday Thank You!


A special Thank You to each of you who donated to the YNC on Giving Tuesday! Your donation to the YNC will help more than 1000 children in 2015 get outdoors and connect with nature while pond-dipping, beach-combing, hiking, kayaking, camping and so much more with volunteer nature mentors.

Your contribution this time of year is especially critical because it determines how many children we can connect with nature the next year. Once again, thank you so much!
