Children in Nature PEI

Children in Nature P.E.I. is a nature-based active program created to inspire children and youth to be active and enjoy nature by providing them with the opportunity to visit natural areas. They are introduced to flora and fauna and take part in fun and engaging activities that will encourage them to grow into individuals who are comfortable in nature; are aware of their impact on the environment; understand important nature-based themes; and develop a love and compassion for nature and physical activity.

This program has various modules for each of the four seasons. Each module will introduce children/youth to different topics relevant to P.E.I. The information will be delivered to the children/youth as they are lead through a winding trail in the woods, across a rolling meadow or along a sandy beach. With each ecosystem they visit, they will see and learn about various living things.

This project is made possible by funding from IWK Community Grants in partnership with Recreation PEI and the City of Charlottetown Park and Recreation Department. IWK Community Grants helps to fund projects dedicated to promoting wellness and healthy living among women, children and youth in the Maritime Provinces. As well as funding from TD Friends of Environment Foundation, this supports grassroot environmental project in various communities across Canada.
