The John Janzen Nature Centre is remaining closed until the winter of 2021. The facility is undergoing a refresh in partnership with the Edmonton Nature Centres Foundation. All visits and programs are currently suspended, including birthday parties, school and group programs, drop-in activities and day camps. Check MoveLearnPlay and this website for updated information as we get closer to reopening this winter.

Come explore the sights and sounds of the River Valley with our daily drop-in programs for the whole family! Meet our animals, explore the trails, and find out what plants and animals are doing as we move from spring to summer, and fall to winter. We adapt the programs to meet the ages of the participants, so all are welcome!

Many of our drop-in programs take place outdoors, so please dress for the weather. Adult participation is required when visiting drop-in programming with children.

Note: Drop-in programs are included in your admission.
