At the Canadian Wildlife Federation, young people often ask us, “How can I get involved and what can I do to help the planet?” When you are aged 15 to 18, the answer is simple: become part of the CWF WILD Outside program, funded by the Government of Canada under the Canada Service Corps program.
Don’t give winter the cold shoulder! Warm up to the idea of winter fun and embrace the joys of healthy outdoor play. Our Below Zero page is designed to keep you happy and healthy all winter by sharing new ways for you and your family to connect with nature during the colder months.

How often do you and your family spend time in nature? Did you know that almost a third of Canadians admit to spending less than a half hour outside per week?* That’s only five minutes a day! Join us in making a resolution to get outside more as a family, and help inspire other families to do the same through WILD Family Nature Club.
