The event for the local area was organized by Morinville and Area Young Naturalist Club Event Organizer Leanne Boissonnault. She said their club is also undergoing a name change. Operating under the umbrella of Nature Alberta — they are now known as Morinville and Area Nature Kids Explorer.
The new name Nature Kids is a fresh new look for Nature Alberta’s Youth Program and includes a new logo. Boissonnault requested to add the word Explorer, to become the Morinville and Area Nature Kids — Explorer.
