Young Macs 2022

In the past, many of our field trips have been family-friendly, a tradition we look forward to restoring.

With the onset of COVID, we had to change how we operated our meetings and field trips and put our Young Macs program for children on the back burner . 

However, if there are children in your life who love discovering what the natural world has to offer, we hope to soon  develop a fresh new program specifically for them.

If you already have a family club membership, your children can join the Young Macs at no cost!

If you have a young naturalist who would like to join our Young Macs program, please email mailto:youngmacs@mfnc.ca

Stay tuned for more details!

Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in getting involved in the program.

Volunteer Opportunity

If you like …

  • being outdoors
  • working with children
  • hands-on activities
  • leading groups
  • learning new things

… then we would love to have your help with field trips for young Macnamarans. In past years, the Young Macnamarans have offered youth in our area an opportunity to head out into woods and fields and learn our local natural history. As we relaunch this program, we need volunteers to help with set-up, planning, ideas, watching our young naturalists, and having fun. If you already know something really cool about the outdoors, maybe you could teach kids what you know!

If you love nature, are looking to fulfill your community service requirement or just want to gain experience working with children, then the Young Macnamarans could be the place for you.
