There is no such thing as “too young” when it comes to developing a sense of comfort with and attachment to the natural world.

The Nature Baby program engages both adult and child in a new learning experience each week. The babies will enjoy a variety of seasonal sensory experiences and visit biodiverse settings. Caregivers (grandparents, aunts, uncles and other caregivers welcome!), will develop their nature mentorship skills through the process.

Nature Baby is a mobile experience, which includes walking and stopping to engage at three to six different nature sites each session. Caregivers must be able to carry their baby off trail and sit on the ground while holding the baby. Please bring a baby carrier or backpack as well as a hat, change of clothes and food for baby.

Location: Saskatoon’s Urban Parks (e.g. Gabriel Dumont Park, Wildwood Park, Holiday Park, Meewasin Park)

Dates: Tuesday, September 10th - Tuesday, October 29th, 2019. Note:This session is now full. Please let us know if you’d like to join a second session by emailing jana@wildernook.com. Thanks!

Timing: 11:15 a.m. is the approximate baby-friendly arrival time, and at 11:30a.m. we will depart from ‘trail-head’. return between 12:15-12:30. The 15 minute buffer on either end is designed to offer a more relaxed and baby-centric experience.

Cost: $104.00/pair (this works out to $13.00/pair for each session)

Cancellation Policy: A refund, minus a 10% administration fee, can be issued up until 2 weeks prior to the event. After that time no refund will be issued.

Join us for 8 weeks of Nature Baby this fall!

An information package will be sent out to registered participants before program start-up.

We look forward to sharing autumn with you and your little monster!

I sincerely believe that for the child, and for the parent seeking to guide him, it is not half so important to know as to feel when introducing a young child to the natural world. If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge and wisdom, then the emotions and the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow. The years of early childhood are the time to prepare the soil.
