Love the outdoors? Would you enjoy working with nature?

A no-charge event this month will help school-aged girls learn about careers in nature-related fields.

“This is a special event for girls aged seven to 14 and the special women in their lives,” says Zoe MacDougall, program co-ordinator for the Nature Kids program created by Nature Alberta.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about careers in the environmental, nature and biology fields “from some very inspiring and knowledgeable women.”

They’ll gain a better understanding of the natural world through engaging presentations, she says, and they’ll also take part in a “bioblitz” to learn species identification skills.

The “Women and Girls in Nature” event is set for Aug. 24 at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Participants should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Pre-registration is required, but southern Alberta girls can secure a space now by email to naturekids@naturealberta.ca
