Nature Explore Club expands partnerships




The Parks Foundation of Clark County has expanded its Nature Explore Club to include three new partners: Vancouver Summer Adventure, the US Forest Service,and Kiwanis Camp Wa-Ri-Ki.

No experience is necessary and the program is free. Ideas for creative outings and fun activities for children of all ages will be posted on the Vancouver Summer Adventure website and Facebook page.
