Fresh Air & Fun at EcoKeepers Discovery Day


Who doesn't love a little fresh air and sunshine? We're so lucky to live in beautiful BC and there are so many amazing ways to share about nature with our kids. I loved being outside as a kid and I want mine to grow up with the same love for the outdoors as I did. There are plenty of opportunities living where we do, and I'm excited to try out geocaching for the first time this weekend with Ari at EcoKeepers Discovery Day (have you tried it???).

EnviroKidz  wants to help get families outside and are hosting a fun geocaching event this Saturday (Sept 17) at Stanley Park: EcoKeepers Discovery Day. In addition to a little competitive fun out in nature, there will be prizes up for grabs and some treats from Nature's Path! Plus the first 50 participants will receive a swag bag filled with organic goodies from Envirokidz, a trackable ladybug, and a $50 gift card from Whole Foods. 

Geocaching is a free activity and whether you're experienced with this fun activity or a beginner like me, it's a fun way to get your kids out in nature looking for hidden treasures! The goal of the new EcoKeepers program is to get kids outside and discover the natural world around them and help them develop a lifelong relationship with nature through free school and camp programs. To learn more about this program or request it for your kid's school, visit the EcoKeepers website. Want to come try geocaching out for yourself and enjoy a fun day out with the family? See below for all the details, hope to see you there!
