Wild Nature Workshops

Wild Nature Workshops are back for 2020 and we hope that you can join us on a winter 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) 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!
