Family Nature Nights

Learn about mushrooms, butterflies, birds, and mammals and the habitat we share with them right here in Edmonton’s green spaces. Join local nature enthusiasts and deepen the connection between your family and our beautiful, complex planet.

The mission of Family Nature Nights is to promote positive experiences for youth and their families with nature, science and urban wilderness. Programming is designed for 4-12 year olds, but nature lovers of all ages are welcome.
