We offer a new opportunity to engage children (5 -11) in nature activities one Saturday per month. Please feel free to bring younger children along with you as well. The Cowichan Valley Young Naturalists are proudly supported by Cowichan Valley Naturalists' Society (CVNS) and the Cowichan Land Trust.
There is also a Cowichan Valley Young Naturalists Club for homlearners that meets once per month on a Tuesday, for more information please click here. Please note that homelearners are also welcome to join the Saturday group if that is a better fit for the family.
Young Naturalists and their families are invited to attend the CVNS Winter Solstice Extravaganza every December and the CVNS Summer Solstice Picnic each June.
For information about the club please email email@example.com or visit our Facebook page (Young Naturalists Clubs of the Cowichan Valley" and click "Like" to follow news/updates on club events. . The URL is https://www.facebook.com/
