Nature Guardians

Nature Guardians is a program just for 10-14 year olds, where no parent or guardian supervision is required on our once-a-month field trip.

Nature Guardians lead hands-on conservation projects in the HRM and, of course, we have fun!

This program takes an open, group-oriented approach where our youth participants help plan what we do each month. Recently, the Nature Guardians planned and implemented a number of stewardship projects at Shubie Park in Dartmouth, including native species plantings, on-going water quality monitoring, and nest box installations. Are your nature nuts interested in real conservation action? New participants are always welcome!

Because parent/guardian supervision is not required, all Nature Guardian trips and events require an RSVP so that we can plan for managing group size safely. Thanks for your planning and understanding!

Check out our Events page or the list at the side of this page for upcoming Nature Guardian events. You can join at ANYTIME throughout the year!
