The Association of Whistler Area Residents for the Environment (AWARE) is looking to get the first AWARE Kid’s Nature Club off the ground, and is looking for volunteers to help out with the program.
If you are interested in volunteering, there will be a meeting on Tuesday, June 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Meadow Park Sports Centre. Participants are asked to bring used posters in good enough shape to be reused, used clothing for costumes, cereal boxes, yarn, paints, crayons, glue and other art supplies, and any ideas they may have for crafts, interactive games, presentations and performing arts.
The opening day for the Kid’s Nature Club is July 28, and the club will meet on the last Saturday of every month. Sessions will be outside when possible, and indoors during bad weather. There is free drop-in for kids aged 6 to 12 at Meadow Park Sports Centre, with sessions running from 10 to 11:30 a.m. All kids must be accompanied by an adult.
Participants will learn about wild plants and animals, play games, do arts and crafts, take part in interactive demonstrations, and put on presentations of their own.
Cara Richard, who ran an environmental program out of the high school this year as well as organizing the Enviro Fest scavenger hunt, will be coordinating the Kid’s Nature Club.
