Welcome to the Canadian Wildlife Federation's WILD Family Nature Club program. The WILD Family Nature Club initiative was developed with help from the International Children and Nature Network. The program is designed to support volunteers like you who want to work with CWF and inspire a love of nature in others by connecting children and families to a world of outdoor play and exploration. From simple nature hikes through urban parks to surveying wildlife conservation areas with your free iNaturalist Canada app, there is no limit to the kind of nature-based activities you can incorporate into your program.
Try Starting a Club
Working with CWF, club leaders can develop the elements of their own semi-structured outdoor programs, hosting family-friendly events anywhere in Canada. If you're interested in starting your own club, you can register to become a WILD Family Nature Club volunteer leader. Whether you run private or public events, you can utilize the online platform to promote the time, date and location of your next WILD Family Nature Club adventure and invite others to participate in your scheduled activities.
Once you’ve registered, CWF will offer you the following free resources and ongoing support:
- Access to our customized online platform
- Leadership training
- Limited liability insurance to ensure you are covered while hosting activities
- Complete resources to help you design your program and develop your activities
- Tools you can incorporate into your program
