The Little Explorers is a Non-Profit organization which purpose is to connect Squamish families with toddlers together while enjoying the outdoors. Our goal is to introduce young children to nature and have them explore on their own as much as possible while ensuring a fun, and safe environment.
To me, The Little Explorers is doing so much towards environmental sustainability, namely in terms of how it creates behavior change, in the little ones as well as their parents, by exposing them to the outdoors in a way they would maybe not necessarily do on their own. I want to introduce local toddlers to new sports, and outdoor activities, that they aren’t familiar with. The Little Explorers opens new doors for these young families to try out new things through guided adventures and clinics. It also teaches nature’s respect and safety. With a supportive community surrounding us, it feels much better and comfortable trying new things.
Once or twice weekly, we are heading out around Squamish to do some outdoor activities, biking, hiking, scavenger hunts, you name it! We always find nice, different places, and fun things to do. People are free to show up for any activities or speeches that are interesting to them. I just want to help parents and their children gain better knowledge and interest about the outdoors while being active outside and practicing different sports.
