Wild Nature Workshops

Wild Nature Workshops are back for 2019 and we hope that you can join us on an adventure in your own backyard!

Wild Nature Workshops are appropriate for those aged 7+. We suggest that you bring a camera and notepad to record all of the amazing things you discover as well as water, a snack, and appropriate clothing and footwear. All tours depart from the Wildsight Elk Valley office (891 2nd Avenue, Fernie). Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the workshop as there is a little bit of paperwork to do as well as a brief intro. Once assembled, we will carpool to the tour start location. 

Wild Nature Tours are led by professional, experienced naturalists equipped with amazing facts, first aid, and a fantastic sense of adventure. Join us for a Wild Nature Workshop this summer and see Fernie from a different perspective!
