Nature Nuts Kids Club
Founded in 2013, the Nature Nuts Kids Club is an active group of young naturalists (ages 8-17) who care about the environment. Club members manage and govern White Pine Tree Trail at the Douglas-Hart Nature Center.
Nature Nuts management includes maintaining trails, picking up litter, removing invasive species, and planting new trees/flowers. A portion of each meeting will include planning for the next meeting, working outside in our area in addition to fun activities. Members will decide what projects need to be completed in what order, what tools we will need, etc. This is a great opportunity to be involved in a club that nurtures responsibility, conservation, and nature awareness. Members can work in their managed area outside of meeting times, and always work alongside Douglas-Hart Nature Center staff.
What to expect:
Membership Dues: A one-time $10 membership fee to help cover meeting snacks and supplies. There may be additional fees such as lunch outings or field trips but our goal is too keep fees minimal.
Officers: Elected in January each year. Must have at least 1 year of Kids Club experience to be an officer.
Special Outings/Events: Throughout the year, opportunities for club members to go on field trips, assist with DHNC events, or host their own event will arise. Parents/guardians will be contacted via email for these special opportunities.
