Flying Squirrel Adventures is a free outdoor nature program for young and old in the Annapolis Valley.

We know that nature is always teaching.  Flying Squirrel Adventures helps

facilitate learning about nature IN nature by bringing people together to learn, share, and explore.  We will help you connect with nature and a community of nature lovers through games, activities, challenges, discussions, presentations, workshops and more!

The Flying Squirrel is a symbol of being curious and having fun in nature!  Also, the flying squirrel is active all through the year, and is very social and hangs out with a group.  Just like us!

Our programs takes place in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People.


The Flying Squirrels meet in person (and more recently) on-line around the Annapolis Valley.  For our first two years the Kentville Ravine was our home base but we have expanded into new areas with new partners as interest grows and expands.

Our monthly in-person events have been moved on-line in recent months to ensure physical distancing, but we are working with individual partners to offer in-person events that meet public health guidelines.

Please check our Community Events  page  or our Facebook page for monthly updates, themes and current programs.

Program leaders have extensive experience leading people outdoors, and have up to date safety training and legal checks to lead young people.
