Young Naturalists Club (Nova Scotia)


Mission Statement

Welcome to the Young Naturalists Club! We are a nature club that provides opportunities for youth and their families to learn about, and connect with nature through field trips with experienced adult naturalists.


We are a nature club geared toward youth and their families. Our programs run from September through June. At Club events, learn from expert naturalists, explore local parks & trails, and experience many fascinating natural phenomena.
Our presentations and field trips are led by volunteer adult naturalists and guest scientists. Our events are age-appropriate, engaging and interactive. A focus of the Club is teaching young naturalists to identify many of the amazing wild plants and animals (and lichens, and mushrooms, and more…) that surround us in Nova Scotia. We learn how to use basic naturalist equipment such as magnifying loupes, binoculars, and field guides. Members get to connect with keen adult naturalists who share their love of exploring nature.

Program Details

Our chapters have regular meeting times each month, but attendance at each event is not necessary to stay in the Club. Come to all of our meetings and field trips, or just those that fit your family’s schedule.
We also hold special events such as new immigrant family hikes, nature blitz's etc., and run the youth program at the annual Nova Scotia Celebration of Nature in partnership with Nature Nova Scotia.
