A gateway to the heart of Edmonton’s River Valley, the John Janzen Nature Centre takes visitors for a walk on the wild side with programs, events and interactive exhibits designed to promote awareness and engagement with nature in an urban setting.

Wild Rose Ramblers Walking Group

All are welcome to explore and enjoy the natural spaces in and around Edmonton. Volunteer leaders will guide you through walks in various natural locations and will share their knowledge of the area. This is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, explore new spaces and enjoy the fresh air and time outside. The Wild Rose Ramblers meet every Tuesday at 9:30am — walk locations will be shared with membership.

Please visit John Janzen Nature Centre to purchase a $20 Wild Rose Ramblers membership (valid for 6 months) — your membership dollars go directly to the Edmonton Nature Centres Foundation. With your membership, you will receive a list of upcoming walks and a membership card. Please contact 311 for more info.
