Upcoming Program

Children aged 6-14 are invited to join the TFN Juniors program. Every child must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Events are monthly, usually on the second Saturday from 10am-12pm. We move around the city to enjoy the wildlife and discover new ravines and parks we may not have  explored before.
