Who Are We?

WRN Kids is a club sponsored by Waterloo Region Nature to encourage kids to enjoy nature.  It's a great place for kids 7-12 years of age (and their parents) to get together, share exciting nature experiences and stories, and learn more about our amazing local environment.

During 2018-19, we’ll learn about Monarch butterflies, aquatic creatures, indigenous skills, endangered turtles, the night sky (special evening program), and we’ll snowshoe (if it snows on the right day!), and plant trees -- and more! Stay tuned for news about extra adventures on our bonus outings, too!

 

Who Can Join?

WRN Kids is open to kids 7-12 years of age.  Registration is necessary. This is a family program, so we request that a parent or guardian stay with their child for the duration of each program.

 

What Does It Cost?

The cost for the September 2018 to May 2019 session is $45.00 per child and $40.00 per additional child in the same family. Registration during February through April is half price. If you register in May, your registration will also include the next fall and winter.

 

Where and When?

The programs are held at Laurel Creek Nature Centre, 525 Beaver Creek Road, Waterloo, and take place on Saturday morning from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon unless otherwise announced ahead of time. The program runs from September through May, with no meeting in December.
