BMN Activities and Events
BMN activities and events are open to everyone of all ages. Participants under the age of 19, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. There may be activities, such as some hikes, that may not be suitable for all ages, so we recommend that you contact the activity leader prior to participating. The contact information is listed in the event details on the events calendar and in the BMN monthly newsletter.

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 families with young children? 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.

Nature Canada’s Nature HomeSchool
Prompted by the current COVID-19 pandemic, and an increase in outdoor learning, and homeschooling parents, guardians, and caretakers, Nature Canada’s NatureHood team developed Nature HomeSchool – a collection of resources for children, youth, parents, and educators of all kinds. These nature-themed and nature-based resources come from our NatureHood regional partners. This resource hub is a living library of videos, downloadable activities, teaching slide decks, and more.

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.
