Connecting families to the natural world and each other
Come get your family nature grooves on with Urban Wild!
When we are outside the outdoors enters through all our senses, we connect with each other and we get to know our communities!
Urban Wild offers family nature programs throughout the seasons. Come explore what we're up to!
Meet the founder and host:
Alexandra O'Rourke B.Sc. Biology MA Environmental Education and Communication Alex has a passion for connecting people of all ages to the natural world. In a time when we feel constantly busy Alex shares "My hope is that people can come to value nature as another partner in their lives — where we can be ourselves, however we arrive. Nature brings us to a more connected place." She has been an Environmental Educator for over 10 years and has been providing family nature programs since 2014. As a parent, she enjoys watching her young family grow and learn from each other in the urban wilds of Calgary, AB.
