The John Janzen Nature Centre takes visitors for a walk on the wild side with programs, events and interactive exhibits designed to promote awareness and engagement with nature in an urban setting.

Every visit offers a chance to connect with nature. The newly renovated facility is located in the heart of Edmonton's River Valley, a perfect natural landscape rich with wildlife and their habitats.

Enjoy the facility with a staff led drop-in program, or on your own with a group of people.
We offer family friendly drop-in programs like animal encounters, nature walks and more.
Get information on facility accessibility, food services, gift shop and more.
Kids can learn about nature through play in our indoor play space.
