Kids can get up close with nature at Burnaby libraries

"Some animals hop and some like to run,

Some fly in the sky just for fun.

Some walk on two legs, some on four

Some use many, many more.

Some like to slither, some swim in the ocean.

Find out about them at Nature in Motion."


With that poem, Burnaby Public Library staffers are inviting local kids in to a couple of upcoming Nature In Motion sessions.

A Metro Vancouver regional park interpreter from the Burnaby Lake Park Nature House will bring nature facts and fun to kids aged four and up - and, yes, the library promises you just might see something wild.

It's on Thursday, Aug. 9 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the McGill branch (4595 Albert St.) and then again on Friday, Aug. 24 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Tommy Douglas branch (7311 Kingsway).

It's a drop-in program, and you don't need to sign up ahead, but arrive early since space is limited. Adults must attend with children under 10. See for more details.
