Metchosin Foundation’s Nature Cards Make Great Christmas Gifts for Kids and the Whole Family
Metchosin Foundation, in consultation with several of the District’s naturalists, teachers and photographers, has developed a boxed set of 50 Nature Cards. The Cards have pictures and easy-to-read descriptions of the most common plants that young people are likely to find on walks through the forests and fields of Southwestern BC.
Printed on water-proof, tear-resistant, heavy stock paper, these 4" x 6" cards can withstand the rigours of outdoor weather and use by many hands. Boxes of the cards would make great Christmas gifts for children who want to learn more about their local natural environment. Cards appropriate to the blooming season, for example, could be used on family hikes to create treasure hunts for local flora. Since each card introduces and defines a basic botanical term such (such as corm, deciduous, and ligules), the cards can be further organized as learning tools.
Nature Card sets are available @ $35 at Mountain Equipment Coop or through the Metchosin Foundation. Descriptions information are at www.metchosinbiodiversity.com/tools.
