Children and Youth Naturalist Sessions

Come on an adventure to the wild side of Petrie Island to enjoy a morning in the great outdoors! The Friends of Petrie Island Naturalist sessions will begin in July on designated Thursdays. This year the theme is Turtles and other Petrie Island Wildlife and sessions will involve a rotation through four stations: a tour of the Nature Center, a nature walk, a scavenger hunt and a free time period. The sessions run for about 2 hours and will be adapted for the ages of the children registered.
