Discover Nature in the Tri-Cities
Get a copy of the BMN’s Discover Nature in the Tri-Cities booklet. This booklet was specifically designed for children and their families to help and encourage them to discover nature in our community. The booklet would also be of interest to anyone that is new to the Tri-Cities area and is wanting to learn more about popular, easy to access, nature and green spaces.
Looking for a nature organization specifically for kids? Check out NatureKids BC.
NatureKids BC is a nature based organization specifically for kids and their families. Through a province-wide network of family nature clubs, citizen science initiatives and NatureWILD magazine, they connect children ages 5-12 with the outdoors to foster a love of the natural world and the skills to take action for nature.
Their mandate is to provide regular opportunities for children and families to explore, learn about and enjoy nature nearest to where they live, guided by local nature mentors – naturalists, college and university scientists and other experts from every possible sphere of interest.
BC Nature (the federation of BC Naturalists including BMN) and Nature Vancouver, in order to help meet the need for nature mentorship, formed the Young Naturalists’ Club (YNC) in 2000 as a program of Nature Vancouver. In 2006, YNC spun into an independent registered charity and it was re-named NatureKids BC in 2015.

Events are open to the public and are no cost. Due to insurance liability, guests may attend up to three activities before they must be a member.
