Nature Fridays! (Theme: Our Climate in Okotoks)

Friday, July 15 - 6:00am to 2:00pm
Environmental Education Centre

Join us for educational activities around the climate and our weather, where we make our own rain gauge, make rain clouds in a jar, and then take in an educational cartoon that teaches us about Canada's four seasons.

 If you've never been to this vibrant, cheerful, interactive space - you need to visit! There's plenty to learn—for people of all ages!

Drop into the Environmental Education Centre anytime throughout the day, and join one of our Conservation Educators for FREE, fun educational activities themed around a different aspect of nature and our local environment each week!
