Welcome to Nature NB’s NatureKids program! This program involves various daycares, after school programs and clubs across the province who are participating in monthly, age appropriate (ages 5-10), and seasonally relevant activity suggestions prepared by Nature NB. Activity suggestions are sent out at the beginning of each month along with any special materials needed. However, if a group wants to lead an activity that varies from the one sent by Nature NB, that’s ok too! The intention is really for each group to lead a nature related activity once a month that helps kids explore the natural world, instill a sense of wonder and encourage an active role in nature conservation!
There is also an ongoing leaderboard, tracking each group’s participation in the monthly events. At the end of the year, each group will receive a certificate of participation and be entered in a draw for a grand prize. Check out the leaderboard below to see how each participating group is doing!

What is NatureKids NB?
NatureKids NB is an adventure club for kids and their families, getting people outside to discover nature together. Our clubs host events once a month and are led by volunteer leaders across the province.
How can my family participate?
Is there an age limit?
Kids of ALL AGES are welcome! In fact, anyone of any age is welcome! Bring your siblings, friends, grandparents, neighbours, and anyone else who would want to join our adventure.
Is there a cost?
NatureKids events are FREE to attend!
What should we bring?
You don’t need to bring anything but your sense of adventure! And maybe a water bottle and a snack. Dress for the weather, and we will provide any and all extra equipment we might need. Snowshoes, binoculars, compasses – we’ve got you covered!
Do I stay with my child?
Yes! We encourage families to participate together! It’s a fun way to bond and learn something new while being active and exploring nature in your neighbourhood!
