About the event

What is Family Nature Club? 

Family Nature Club is a way to get the entire family engaged in productive play outdoors. Our mission is to foster a deep connection between children and nature, promoting not only physical health but also intellectual, emotional, and social development. Through a blend of free play, guided activities, and hands-on learning, we encourage families to embrace the wonders of the natural world. Whether it's discovering the hidden treasures of a nearby park, creating art with found materials, or simply running and laughing in the open air, our club seeks to kindle a lifelong love for the great outdoors in both children and adults, all while strengthening the bonds of family and community. Let nature be your playground, your classroom, and your source of countless joyful memories.
