MVFN’s Young Naturalists program (YN) is a nature-oriented program for nature loving young naturalists aged 6-11 years. YN meets one Saturday a month at beautiful Mill of Kintail Conservation Area to explore a different nature-themed topic each month. The young naturalists are provided with a nature journal, which we add pages to each month.
Each session includes an outdoor component and a take home craft/activity.
The dates and topics for the fall 2017 Saturday sessions are as follows:
September 16: Nature Exploration Day. A day to discover more about each other and the awesome habitats around the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area.
October 14: Fall and Leaves
November 4: Owls and, our favorite activity, Owl Pellet Dissection
December 2: Hibernation and Migration
For each session there are two time slots to choose from. Participants attend one or the other time slot:
Early: 9 am – 10:45 am OR
Later: 11 am – 12:45 pm
REGISTRATION: Each session is limited to 15 participants. Cost is $60 per child and includes all four sessions.
