Nature for Newcomers

Explore the Valley's natural beauty in all seasons

Discover and experience some of the many outdoor activities offered in the Annapolis Valley through our Nature for Newcomers event series.  We're thrilled to welcome newcomers from all corners of the world to this beautiful region. Whether you're exploring solo, with a partner, or as a family, and regardless of your place of origin, you're invited to join us. And if you're a local looking to extend a warm welcome, we'd love to have you too!  

With our friends at Valley Connector Program, Annapolis Valley Welcome Network and Y-Reach, we are planning four seasonal outings in 2024: sledding (winter), maple tapping (early spring),  picnic + games in the park (summer), and a corn maze visit (fall). Scroll down for details and registration link for our next event.
