Nature Alberta is an organization dedicated to the appreciation, protection and conservation of Alberta’s natural environment. One of their offerings is Nature Kids, which is dedicated to encouraging children and their families to spend time in nature. Family Nature Nights are FREE, fun evening programs. Programming is geared toward kids aged 4 to 12, but all are welcome! 2024 marks 10 years of Family Nature Night events!

The girls loved the Nature Night that we attended a couple years back – especially getting the chance to touch fish! We also learned about water insects, the water treatment plant and natural waterways.
