This fall, SaskOutdoors is offering a unique intergenerational nature program in Saskatoon. The Nature Grandparenting program is designed for grandparents to experience nature with their grandchild (three- to five-years old) in Saskatoon’s Gabriel Dumont Park.
The event is being held on Wednesday mornings between Sept. 21 to Oct. 26, with two start times: 9:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
Many grandparents are in a unique position to act as a nature mentor in the lives of their grandchildren. With practical ideas and age-appropriate activities shared each week, grandparents will have fun weaving a connection to nature into the special relationship they have with their grandchild. This program will be facilitated by Jana Miller, former Ecoquest teacher.
This program takes place outdoors. Participants will need to dress for the weather and should be comfortable being active outdoors for an hour. Public washrooms are available on site for use. An information package will be sent out to registered participants in early September.
The event costs $95.00/pair for six six weeks ($16.00/week). The registration deadline is Sept. 14. Those who sign up are asked to review SaskOutdoors’ cancellation policy.
