Past Sessions

We wrapped up our fall session of Nature Kids on October 26, 2021. While we’re sad this session is over, we are so glad that we got to explore outdoors with such an amazing group. Over the six week session, we explored EcoHouse’s grounds, pressed leaves, found crawfish in our local creek, fed composting worms, built a shelter, made milkweed seed balls, and carved local pumpkins.

While we plan for our next Nature Kids session, check out a few pictures from our fall session below.

Nature Kids is a dynamic recreation program that focuses on increasing children’s physical activity and fostering a deep connection to nature through new skills such as gardening and nature exploration. Nature Kids Youth Eco Adventure programming is generously supported in 2020 and 2021 by a SEED Grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and in 2020 by the Ed Smee Grant from the Conserver Society of Hamilton and District and the City Enrichment Fund of the City of Hamilton:
