The new Families in Nature program starts June 23.

Hope Mountain Centre launches new program

Families in Nature aims to inspire families to discover and enjoy nature together

Hope Mountain Centre is introducing Families In Nature, a program designed to inspire families of all ages to discover and enjoy the wonders of nature together.

Starting Saturday, June 23 the group will be meeting every fourth Saturday of the Month, at the Recreation Centre in Hope at 10 a.m.

Hope Mountain Centre invites you to join us and step outside for an easy local nature walk in Hope, no experience necessary. You’ll be amazed at what we will find in our own backyard. The outings are suitable for all ages and led by Carmen Pereda an Early Childhood Educator, outdoor enthusiast and mom of two young and very active boys.

Please dress appropriately for the weather. The nature walks are between 1-2 hours.

A signed parental consent is required each time your family participates in the program. If you are an extended family member or friend bringing a child please have their parents sign the consent form prior to the day of participation. All children are to be accompanied and supervised by an adult, preferably a family member.

Hope Mountain Centre will also be at the upcoming Story Time In The Park. The group will have an interactive nature table with information on the program and free bookmarks.

For more information regarding Families In Nature please call HMC at 604-869-1274.
