Nature Nut Outdoor Club

Join us in the Children’s Garden for an exploration of inquiry-based outdoor learning under the twilight sky! Registration is now open.

Nature nut winter

Through active outdoor play with an emphasis on inquiry-based discovery, our Nature Nut Outdoor Club program engages young explorers (ages 5-12) in active, creative, and meaningful play and inquiry within a safe and inclusive setting!

By nurturing their growing sense of self, this program fosters creative expression in all forms through activities and outdoor challenges such as fort building, animal tracking, fire programming, winter arts & crafts and more. Activities are designed to cultivate local ecological literacy through lived experience and to support a culture of gratitude and nature connection with a focus on wellness and wandering.

Participants can expect to run, jump, hide, seek, balance and roll! Our staff work with children to build confidence and support them in taking healthy risks, while cultivating authentic relationships and connections to create a sense of belonging among and between children and the natural world around them.

FAQs

What do you do in inclement weather?

We’re outside as much as possible! We love the outdoors at the Brick Works and spend as much time outside as we can. That being said, we do have access to covered and/or indoor spaces at all times and can spend some time inside in extreme weather.

We do have cold weather policies, including the possibility that programming could be cancelled if we know the day is going to be colder than -30C degrees as well as warming stations set out in the Children’s Garden where programming takes place. Participants will be notified via email in case of cancellations due to extreme cold.

Will participants be required to wear masks outdoors?

No, however, participants are highly recommended to wear non-medical masks in all indoor spaces, including washrooms. Please note that we are a mask-friendly space.

We ask you to pack extra non-medical masks or face coverings for your child(ren). We also have some disposable masks available.

What happens in the event Evergreen cancels the program due to COVID-19?

If Evergreen is forced to cancel the Nature Nut program due to COVID-19, we will notify you via email. Refunds will be issued, less the non-refundable deposit, should Evergreen cancel a session or session days due to changing public health regulations or COVID-19 related closures. Evergreen retains the right to change our refund policy without notice to adapt to the evolving public health situation.

Where can I park?

Evergreen offers free parking window with a pass, in all parking lots from 4:15-4:45pm and 6:15-6:45 pm every Tuesday during Nature Nut programming. If parking outside those hours you must pay at the meter.

Refund Policy

No refunds will be issued if a reservation is cancelled within 21 days of the session start date. Otherwise, fees are refundable, less a $10 administration fee. Please note, registrations are non-transferable. 

Refunds will not be issued for missed program days due to inclement weather, including flooding.
