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 2019-2020 we started by studying pond creatures and then learning how to do nature photography. We participated in the Christmas Bird Count for Kids. We got enough snow to go snowshoeing.

Our new program has started.  Registration is still open for the 2021-2022 season.


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 usual cost for the September to May session is $45.00 per child and $40.00 per additional child in the same family, but all fees have been waived for the 2021-2022 year.


Where and When?

The programs will be at a few different locations throughout the year (so take special note of the venue in each program announcement) and the programs take place on the last Saturday of the month from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon unless otherwise announced ahead of time. The program normally runs from September through May, with no meeting in December. There are occasional bonus outings.
