We organize  EVENING PROGRAMS (from September to April), FIELD TRIPS (throughout the year),  an annual SUMMER CAMP and occasional  workshops, and more.

The  BIRDINGBOTANY, GEOLOGY, MARINE BIOLOGYand PHOTOGRAPHY Sections provide a greater focus in specific areas of nature.

Nature Vancouver is also actively involved in CONSERVATION projects. Currently the projects include FALSE CREEK OYSTER SURVEYS and NEW BRIGHTON PARK RESTORATION.
