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 2018-2019, we learned about Monarch butterflies, aquatic creatures, indigenous skills, endangered turtles, the night sky, tracking, and we also planted trees. For 2019-2020 we will start by studying pond creatures and then learning how to do nature photography.


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 2019 to May 2020 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 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 runs from September through May, with no meeting in December. There are occasional bonus outings.
