Wild Nature Tours

Wild Nature Workshops will return!

We are planning activities for when we can safely gather again. Please check back!

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 (back door at 632 2nd Avenue, Fernie) unless noted. 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 winter and see Fernie from a different perspective!
